World Cinema Wednesday

Kinetic, audacious and wholly entertaining, Run Lola Run is a thrilling watch from German director Tom Tykwer. I haven’t seen it for a while but it’s the type of film you can’t forget, if not for it’s intensity, then surely for it’s inventiveness.

Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu) is involved in a smuggling operation. Manni’s final task in a particular job is to transport 100 000 marks to his boss Ronnie. Lola (Franka Potente) is supposed to drive him to the meeting, but her moped has been stolen. Manni resorts to public transportation but when Lola doesn’t appear, he accidentally leaves the money on a subway train, where it is found by a bum. He places a frantic phone call to Lola and explains the situation: if he doesn’t have the money when he meets Ronnie at noon, Manni will be killed. Lola vows to find the money by then, but noon is only twenty minutes away. The clock is ticking.
