Directed by Tom Tykwer, Germany 1998
81 mins. German dialogue with English sub-titles
 
Summary:
 
In this visually and conceptually impressive film, two-bit Berlin criminal Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu) delivers some smuggled loot for his boss, Ronnie (Heino Ferch), but accidentally leaves the 100,000 mark payment in a subway car.  Given twenty minutes to come up with the money, he calls his girlfriend, Lola (Franka Potente), who sprints through the streets of the city to try to beg the money out of her bank manager father (Herbert Knaup) and get to Manni before he does something desperate.
 
What the Critics say:
 
"Not only does Lola run, she takes this hyperkinetic pop culture firecracker of a film with her."  (Kenneth Turan - Los Angeles Times)
