Run Lola Run

[First lines in the subtitle version]

Narrator : Man... probably the most mysterious species on our planet. A mystery of unanswered questions. Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? How do we know what we think we know? Why do we believe anything at all? Countless questions in search of an answer... an answer that will give rise to a new question... and the next answer will give rise to the next question and so on. But, in the end, isn't it always the same question? And always the same answer?

Run Lola Run(1998) is an interesting time-loop movie. Lola is a girl who wants to help her boyfriend who is in trouble because of having lost a large amount of money in a train to a stranger. Lola runs to help him and in fatal turn of events she dies only to wake up again inside the same loop. This loop runs exactly three times and Lola learns from the mistakes every time and eventually meets her boyfriend in a parallel universe. 

The old blind lady in black goggles is most mysterious in the film because she points to the thief in the end. The movie is very funny and short. The soundtrack is amazing different songs play every time Lola runs through the loop. The way starting credits roll and you enter into the movie is also very original and brilliant.
