Run Lola Run
“It deals with the metaphysical issues of fate and destiny”. This film is about how a man accidentally left a bag of cash that he was couriering for a gangster on a subway. As seconds tick away, the tiniest choices become life altering. It demonstrates the intricate web of unseen connections that bind us all. The film takes an aside to show what happens to each person after their brush with Lola. With each altered scenario, the destiny of each person changes as a result of their contact with Lola, some better, some worse. I think just like Sliding Doors, it is exciting to see how things could or wouldn’t happen depending on the choices you make. It is interesting to see how different our lives could be, the people we would meet and the events that would occur from the smallest of actions.
