Run Lola Run

I finally was able to see Run Lola Run which I had wanted to see for a long time. I have to tell you that it was well worth the wait. The plot revolves around a woman who must get 100,000 marks (about $71,000) in twenty minutes or her boyfriend, who has lost his crime lord’s money, will come to great harm. The movie posits three possible scenarios which we get to see in a sequence of runs. Franka Potente plays the girlfriend and gives a riveting performance. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. One other bonus feature is that the soundtrack of the film includes music by Danbury’s own musical favorite son, Charles Ives. The selection is The Unanswered Question which is a chamber ensemble piece.
