Run Lola Run
This is an extremely suspenseful (relatively short) German film; Manni has lost 100,000 Deutschmarks to pay off a mob boss and is about to rob a grocery store; it is up to Lola who "runs" to stop him or come up with the money on her own. Three different scenarios play out of how things might go down; at only 81 minutes this film is extremely action packed and will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Downfall, The Counterfeiters, Das Boot (some of the other German films at LCL).]
