Lola Rennt [Run Lola Run] (1998)
Lola's boyfriend is in trouble. He lost 100,000 deutschmarks and if he doesn't recover it in 20 minutes his boss will kill him. Lola needs to get the money and get it to him in time. But, her moped was stolen earlier that day. What else can she do but start running...
This is the first German language film I have ever watched so I can't compare it to any others. If it were American it would probably be one of those quirky, artsy sleepers that nobody has seen but should. It's a very interesting film with a fresh take on an old plot dilemma.
MY RATING: 10/10
