We open with perhaps the most fun we’ve ever had in an arthouse theater, Run Lola Run, in which our eponymous hero has to try and raise a bundle of cash for her boyfriend, less he gets blown away by some thugs. Lola races through Berlin not once, but in three totally different scenarios (once as a cartoon heroine,) in her desperate attempt to save her lover’s life. All this to some insane German Techno music!
Rarer still is Tykwer’s previous effort (Lola put him on the map), Winter Sleepers, a complex and melancholy film in which five people with profound secrets collide, physically and emotionally, at a remote ski chalet. Don’t miss this rare screening!
