Movie Info

Presenting his third feature after last year's acclaimed Wintersleepers, Tom Tykwer cranks up the volume, stiffens the pace, and jettisons us on one of this year's most exhilarating cinematic adventures. A breathtaking race against the clock, Run Lola Run straps Tykwers' playfully hip sensibilities to a fun-filled mix of romance, thrills, and action as his tireless heroine pounds the pavement and racks her brain to save her lover from danger. Manni and Lola are twenty-something Berliners, way … More

Critic Reviews for Run Lola Run (Lola rennt)

All Critics (91) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (74) | Rotten (6) | DVD (24)

Run Lola Run is fun, fun, fun.

Full Review… | March 19, 2002
Globe and Mail
Top Critic

Cleverly juggling the elements and encounters of a simple thriller scenario by using multiple viewpoints and a domino effect to create different destinies...

Variety
Top Critic

Not only does Lola run, she takes this hyperkinetic pop culture firecracker of a film with her.

Full Review… | February 14, 2001
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

...a sort of power-pop variation on the mystical time-bending Euro-art movies made by the late Krzysztof Kieslowski.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A film of nonstop motion and visual invention.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Teenagers with a taste for the offbeat may enjoy.

Full Review… | December 28, 2010
Common Sense Media

Run Lola Run takes a few moments to muse about the nature of time and the purpose of man... But its real agenda is the purpose of woman.

Full Review… | May 26, 2006
Combustible Celluloid

Accompanied by techno music and populated by young and likeable "hip" protagonists, Run Lola Run is very pleasing to the eyes and ears of its viewers.

Full Review… | February 16, 2005

despite its brittle techno-punk rhythms and spots of nihilism... this is sort of a throwback to the days before the talkies

Full Review… | January 29, 2005
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

When you drop a reality-based attitude and go with the flow, Run Lola Run leaves you slightly breathless with admiration.

Full Review… | June 23, 2004

Run Lola Run could very well be the punchiest piece of concept art to ever hit the silver screen, a shock-dose of German existential cinema you can ride.

Full Review… | August 1, 2003
Slant Magazine

Tom Twyker's frenzied directing is never dull, and casting his girlfriend [Franka] Potente in the role was a smart choice.

Full Review… | March 19, 2003
eFilmCritic.com

All the actors do perform excellently in their roles, but the star here is the director Tom Tykwer. The layering of the imagery, soundtrack, and the pacing all come together to outshine any performance by a single actor.

Supercala.com

Compared to the alternate scenarios envisioned in Sliding Doors or Blind Chance, Run Lola Run comes across as pedestrian.

Full Review… | June 5, 2002
Boxoffice Magazine

this goofy, audacious, visually stylized omnibus of what-ifs that operates on its own peculiar logic, and powers along with the force of a truck on the Autobahn.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The populist bang of Speed meets snobbish, espresso-fueled elitism.

Full Review… | March 7, 2002
Matinee Magazine

For writer and director Tykwer, the meaning of life is strongly colored by small incidents of coincidence.

Full Review… | March 5, 2002
Spirituality and Practice

Run Lola Run sets new standards for the cinema of hysteria.

Sight and Sound

...it's a stylistic triumph--swift, witty, consistently dazzling to behold.

Full Review… | January 9, 2002
Movieline

Every tick of the 81 minutes in Run Lola Run is pounding with kinetic energy and double-espresso adrenaline, like a marathon inside a rave inside a fusion reactor.

SPLICEDWire

What a blast!

Full Review… | January 1, 2000
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Run Lola Run is a high-octane pulse-pounder driven by style, speed, deviously clever flourishes, and a driving techno-beat--a film that moves so fast it almost breaks free of its limited orbit.

Audience Reviews for Run Lola Run (Lola rennt)

Lola has twenty minutes to find a way to get 100,000 Deutschmarks to her boyfriend across town before he gets whacked. Problem is, she's broke, but fortunately, she gets a couple do-overs. Experimental but accessible, Lola schemes (and runs) nonstop through this frenetic thriller/drama; breathers are for subplots and flashbacks. She's going to need a new sports bra when this is all over.

½

A young woman receives a phone call from her boyfriend telling her that if he doesn't get 100,000 Deutchmarks within 20 minutes he's a dead man. It tells of the consequences of the phone call in 20 minutes of real time three times over, each containing a slightly differing timeline, thus showing how minor incidents or coincidence can have a massive knock on effect to not only your life, but those around you. Run Lola Run is very much a product of its time; the techno soundtrack, grunge fashion and fascination with the mathematics of probability (ie "the butterfly effect") all reek of the 1990s, but Run Lola Run still feels strangely fresh, probably because of its brisk, no-nonsense pace and 75 minute running time meaning it never gets too caught up in pretentious navel gazing. I could have lived without some of the directorial affectations that made it feel a little too much like a music video in places, and the coincidences are of course extremely unlikely, but the urban crime element gives it a Luc Besson-esque flavour that makes for an entertaining and original experience.

It's the choices you make that lead you to the situation of the present , not life by itself.
This flickr deals with the pleasure of trying any possibility until achieving the best one .Unfortunately everybody's life doesn't come with such instructions to it's manual...
