Product Description

From the director (Tom Tykwer) and star (Franka Potente) of the internationally acclaimed, fast-paced smash hit, Run Lola Run, comes a startling fresh and compelling romantic drama that will leave you breathless. When shy, beautiful nurse Sissi is the victim of a horrible car accident, a handsome small-time criminal miraculously saves her life. When she recovers, Sissi sets out to find him and discovers a violent man with a conflicted past and dangerous future. Soon, the two meet again in the middle of a deadly bank robbery, and Sissi realizes her fate is pre-destined. Or is it?

Two individuals cross paths in a most unlikely manner: after Sissi, a psych ward nurse, gets struck down by a truck Bodo, a disturbed and violent man, runs to her safety and saves her life. From this point in time both of their lives become forever intertwined, although not always in a healthy and positive manner. While Bodo just wants to let events rest in the past Sissi becomes obsessed with him and won't leave him alone. She frequently ponders whether her rescue of Bodo was an act of fate or coincidence, and as the events of this film unravel the audience is also perplexed at the true meaning.
Meanwhile Bodo and his brother are planning a bank heist and desperately wish that Sissi would leave them both alone, even to the point of throwing her out in the middle of a rain storm. But Sissi is relentless to reach out to the disturbed Bobo and the demons that lay in his head.
There is little doubt that this is a dark and twisted film -- but at the same time it is entertaining and engrossing. The character development is finely executed resulting in a finely tuned film full of action, emotion, and depth. It's a shame that I never heard of this DVD only until recently. Why? It truly deserves more publicity and praise. Highly recommended.

In the film, "Run Lola Run", Tom Tykwer challenges to the cinematic male gaze. One year later Tykwer made this film and he challenges it again. Compare to Lola, Sissi is a totally different character. Unlike to Lola, Sissi follows the Hollywood heroin image by how she dresses. However, after Sissi meets Benno, She also becomes a hero to save Benno like Lola saving Manni. The difference between Lola and Sissi is that Lola is more like a super woman. Lola wants to save Manni by herself. On the other hand, Sissi is an ordinary woman who wants to help Benno out. Because Sissi and Benno are connected to each other by feeling loneliness so toward the end, they help and support each other to get away. Unlike Lola couldn't save Manni, Sissi could save Benno. I think that although Sissi and Benno are both lonely, Sissi is mentally stronger than Benno because he suffers from his past. Benno needs Sissi's help and he accepts her help but Manni asked Lola for a help but he solves himself. Even though Sissi succeeds to help Benno, does he have to be mentally weak? In this film, Benno cries a lot. The situations of Lola and Sissi are different but they are in the same situation that females cannot act as same as male roles do. If this film was made of a continuation of "Run Lola Run", Tykwer might be telling us that although Sissi could be a hero, the situation hasn't been changed.

_The Princess and the Warrior_ offers great characters, an interesting story line, and great cinematography and direction. Like many others, I saw _Run Lola Run_ first, and liked it very much. This film had more character development and seems to be a more introspective and philosophical than Lola.
Potente carries the film with her portrayal of a sanitorium nurse, Sissi. She is a strong lead and can show a great range of emotions. The character of Bodo Riemer, played by Führmann, also gave a great performance as an ex-soldier who is recovering from the death of his wife. He is emotionally distant, and has fallen into a life of crime. A freak accident brings the two together, and Bodo ends up saving Sissi's life. After Sissi's long recovery, she sets out to find Bodo, believing that they are meant to be together. Bodo cannot move on from his past, and Sissi is rejected many times.
This movie is not a typical boy-meets-girl romance, rather, it is about fate, and how things can change in a split second. I highly recommend this film!

Tom Tykwer has become one of my favorite film directors and screenwriters. "The Princess and The Warrior" was an excellent film in all aspects: story, characterization, cinematography, score, actors' performances. I recommend it for those who believe in fate, a journey of personal and interpersonal growth of two people, whose lives are not merely convenient or coincidental. Tykwer knows how to tell stories with his cameras' views, how to keep you guessing (wrong many times), how to intrigue with sentiment and hope without being artificial or cloyingly cheap, how to intermix physical external reality with the surrrealness of a person's perceptions of reality.
The plot was intricately constructed, all scenes linked, all characters having a history and purpose. The characters, you care about them, you are invested in them. (One of my major complaints about the majority of US films.) It's often difficult to describe films like this, because you don't want to give away the plot, but even so, the film's message transcends a plot fulfillment. It has an epic feel, without being an epic, because the characters are transformed both within and outward, a magnitude of understanding transgressed, yet the plot moves briskly. Chaos and reconstruction, on all fronts, plenty of fodder for thought. For those who like to think, and those who enjoy a good "suspense drama," this was a wonderfully executed plan, a hybrid of "Run Lola Run" and "Heaven" in theme and style.
(P.S. might I facetiously add, the main guy has beautifully rich blue eyes, an intensity mixed with confused innocence, and the most absurdly hot life-saving maneuver I have ever seen in a movie.)
4 1/2 of 5 stars.
