Racing back to theaters with a sparkling new 4k restoration, there's no time like the present to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Run Lola Run. In an apartment, a bright red phone rings—Lola, her hair as vibrant as the phone, answers. Manni, her boyfriend and a carrier for a dangerous gangster, informs her that he’s lost a bag containing 100,000 Deutschmarks on the train and has only 20 minutes to recoup the lost money before he's killed. They hang up, and the pulse-pounding countdown begins. In perhaps one of the best on-screen examples of the Butterfly Effect, witness how Lola’s actions affect the world as we run with her three times, and how the tiniest of differences in her actions aid or hinder her journey and ultimately decide the fates of herself, Manni, and those she encounters in her race against time. “The ferociously infectious, candy-colored jump-cut style of Run Lola Run is pure, propulsive pop...In its speed and elegant hyper-precision, its celebration of action as devotion, it’s a new-style girl-power daydream.”—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.

In German with English subtitles.
