Run Lola Run (Lola Rennt)

What is it?

The 1998 German experimental thriller movie Run Lola Run (Lola Rennt).

Run Lola Run Trailer
LOLA RENNT | Trailer (XV)

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

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 past cool and desperately in love.

When Manni, a local criminal’s errand boy, loses twenty thousand Marks, he has twenty minutes to find the money or face retaliation.

Not the brightest bulb, Manni turns to the quick-witted, resourceful Lola to devise a plan to save his hide.

And so she does, and off she sprints, running for Manni’s life, for her love, and to find money somewhere, somehow.

Dangling three “what if” variations on Lola’s mission to save her mate, Run Lola Run propels us toward each outcome with a delicious peppering of surprises, quirks, and twists.

A sure-fire hit with audiences, Run Lola Run brings to the screen two actors of immeasurable charisma: Franka Potente as the heroic, flame-haired Lola, and Moritz Bleibtreu as her doltish but devoted lover.

Scoring his delirious staccato mix of animation, still photographs, and live action to a pounding techno beat, Tykwer reveals himself a virtuoso of the medium and, at the same time, a passionate believer in destiny and the transcendent power of love.

Here is the German (Deutsch) description of this movie on Wikipedia:

Lola rennt ist ein deutscher Actionthriller des deutschen Regisseurs und Filmproduzenten Tom Tykwer aus dem Jahr 1998 mit Franka Potente und Moritz Bleibtreu in den Hauptrollen.

Der Film zeigt dreimal dieselbe Zeitspanne von zwanzig Minuten, jedes Mal mit kleinen Detailunterschieden, die die Handlung jeweils zu einem völlig anderen Ausgang führen (Schmetterlingseffekt in einer Form ähnlich einer Zeitschleife).

Dreams

My Dad Dreams About Mrs. SH

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Tonight my dad shared a dream with me that he had last night, my dad does not remember his dreams that often, and so this was a surprise.

I will type my dad’s dream below.

All that my dad remembers of his dream is that he was at Mrs. SH’s house taking care of her like he used to do sometimes when he used to work for her doing yard work and helping her with various other things that she needed help with because she was very old and she needed some assistant because of that and because of some health problems.

Mrs. SH was from Germany (German) and she probably left Germany after World War II, and at some point she married a soldier from another country; and many years later in her old age my dad ended up working for her as one of his side jobs.

Anyway, during my dad’s dream after he finished helping Mrs. SH, he drove back home and he called Mrs. SH’s sons to let them know that she was doing good.

During the telephone or mobile phone conversation my dad was able to see Mrs. SH’s sons, in his mind I assume, and when my dad told them that their mother was doing fine they looked confused and they replied: “Well, John, mom is dead…”.

My dad replied: “Yeah, that’s right! I must be going crazy.”.

And then my dad woke up in the real world.

My dad told that this dream seemed real when he was in it, he was doing some of the usual things that he used to do when working and helping at Mrs. SH’s house, back before she died several years ago.

The end,

-John Jr
