Synopsis

Red-haired Lola receives a phone call from her boyfriend Manni who informs her that he will be killed unless she can find 100,000 Deutschmarks within the next 20 minutes. Manni informs her that he is about to rob a nearby supermarket to try and raise the funds, but she implores him to wait. Seeking assistance from her father, who is a bank manager, Lola sprints towards his office to find him in the midst of an intense conversation. As well as family revelations being disclosed, Lola is denied the money, and must run to meet Manni to help him pull off the robbery. At the end of this sequence of events, the cycle repeats twice more with subtle variations. ‘Run Lola Run’ is a stylised, high-octane thriller posing philosophical questions around cause-and-effect, free will, and determinism.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
