Classic German Thriller

Okay, if you have ever been to one German class, you probably are already aware of Lola Rennt – Tom Tykwer’s 1998 German thriller.

Lola Rennt is a cultural phenomena, similar to the cult following of Donnie Darko and  Garden State in the US.

Lola gets a call¬†stating her boyfriend will be killed in 20 minutes, if she does not find and turn over 100,000 Deutsche Marks. The film shows 3 different “runs”, each starting from the same place in time.

Even if you’re not learning German, this film is worth adding to your collection.
