A thrilling post-MTV, roller-coaster ride, Run Lola Run is the third film by director Tom Tykwer, a frequent collaborator of the Wachowski’s (Tywker co-directed Cloud Atlas and episodes of Sense8). Time is running out for Lola (Franka Potente). She's just received a frantic phone call from her boyfriend, Manni (Moritz Bleibtreu), who's lost a small fortune belonging to his mobster boss. If Lola doesn't replace the money in twenty minutes, Manni will be killed. A throbbing techno score by Tykwer keeps the blood flowing while the concepts of free will and determinism are tackled onscreen as Lola repeats her adrenaline-fueled running, making small changes here and there in order to save her boyfriend.
