Lola rennt!, was does that mean, well it's in german for lola run! literally, and a beautiful movie has been made on that title. This movie is also otherwise famously known as "Run Lola Run", and it's directed by Tom Twyker a german director, this is the first german movie i have ever seen, which makes german the 5th foreign language in which i have seen movie's. Ok many might have seen this movie already since it is so famous and hit theaters in '98, it's an absolute thriller with maverick screenplay and even more maniac story.
Lola gets a phone call from her boyfriend Manni, crying he lost 100,000 marks(german currency) and he's got only 20 more mins left now(time is 11:40) to pay off or he would be killed by the person whom he owes that money and by 12, he would rob the supermarket near him and take the money to pay away the 100,000, so lola starts running thinking where to go, and she thinks it's better to go to her dad and then, the movie starts to blow you into pieces, from then on it's a masterpiece, very fast, very logical, and certainly very good.
This movie is actually three different sets of stories or ways in which that 100,000 marks can be got, the movie stops after each instance of getting the money and again starts afresh and it ends the third time only.This is a very small movie approx 1 hour and 10 mins but very effective in telling the story. A must watch for thriller genre fans like me, currently rated 8 on imdb, surely going to be one of my most favorite movies of all time.Must Watch movie.Bye.
