Film Forum to Feature European ClassicSaint Leo University Film Forum
Lola rennt
(Run, Lola, Run)

The Saint Leo University Film Society, English Department, and Office of Alumni Relations present an afternoon of film and discussion.

Tom Tykwer's 1998 masterpiece Lola rennt (English title: Run Lola Run) is one of the most important international films of the past twenty years. The story follows Lola's frantic quest through the streets of Berlin to save Manni, her not-too-bright boyfriend who has run afoul of his gang's boss. If Lola can not save Manni, he will die. Will love conquer all obstacles?

Hyperkinetically fast-paced, the film is exciting, funny, and filled with higher meaning. Come join Dr. Donald Pharr and Dr. Charles Grimes to watch and discuss this cinematic explosion.

The event is open to everyone, admission is free, and refreshments will be available.

The film is in German with subtitles and runs 81 minutes. It is rated R for language and some violence.
