Run Lola Run
is a 1998 German film about a girl Lola who needs to get 100,000 Deutsche Marks in order to save her Manni's (her boyfriend) life.

When Lola receives the phone call from Manni explaining that he needs to get the money to his boss within 20 minutes so he can avoid his punishment, Lola decides to take the task on herself and ask her father for the money.

The movie shows three different scenarios of what Lola has to encounter that morning when she tries to get the money for her boyfriend. Each of these scenarios are very similar, yet the people and instances that Lola runs into differ immensely.

Winner of the 1999 Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, Lola is fast (pun intended), action packed and musically moving movie, about a girl whose boyfriend is mixed with the mob and he's lost their money. She has 20 minutes to solve this problem or else Manni will be feeding fishes in the Rhine!

Great seeing this fast-paced German film again. Man, Lola has stamina! Three alternate realities all based on a few seconds' difference can make all the changes in the world. If the light were green rather than red, would your life turn out different?

I first saw Run Lola Run in a social studies class in high school... and let me just say, it blew me away. I can't remember ALL the details of this movie, but here's the quick run down.    Lola needs to get money for her boyfriend, Manni. This movie shows three 20 minute "clips" - each of her doing the same thing: running out of her house, past people in her neighborhood, trying to get the money for her boyfriend.    However, in each of these clips, there …
