KINO! Film Salon: Run Lola Run
KINO! Film Salon is a monthly online film club to discuss German film.
How it works: Each month we choose a German film or series currently available to stream, watch it independently, and come together for a hosted conversation with other fans of German film.
In our next session, we’ll talk about Tom Tykwer’s modern classic Run Lola Run (1998), starring Franka Potente and Moritz Bleibtreu. Streaming on platforms including Prime Video and Apple TV.
In this visually and conceptually impressive film, two-bit Berlin criminal Manni delivers some smuggled loot for his boss but accidentally leaves the 100,000 Deutschmark payment in a subway car. Given 20 minutes to come up with the money, he calls his girlfriend Lola, who sprints through the streets of the city to try to beg the money out of her bank manager father and get to Manni before he does something desperate.
