Obviously they got this title from the Forrest Gump line “Run Forrest Run”. This movie was great. I thought the style of the film was exceptional. I loved how they blended a lot of different and unique camera angles and neat shots, mixed in with some animation sequences. I thought it was cool to see the story three different ways in the short 20 minute period that the film lives in. I was a little confused by the still photography prophecies that happened as Lola ran past certain people, although I found myself wanting to see the next one. Franka Potente needs to be in more films, or there just need to be more German actresses in films… because they are great. I was glad to watch this film in its original language, it always seems better that way. Plus their mouths match up to their words. I’d recommend this movie for sure, very entertaining, fast paced and cool with a unique soundtrack.
