Movie Review by Lisa
March 5th, 2007

I avoided this movie for the longest time mainly due to fact that it was a fond favorite of the pretentious artsy fartsy uni-student tossers who frequented my local pub. They would blatantly dismiss all "popular" films and rant about how Hollywood is killing independent film, when you knew that they secretly loved "Happy Gilmore" and "Dirty Dancing" they used to get right on my t*ts. Therefore I vowed not to watch this film in fear that those annoying little scrotes in the pub were right.

It wasn't till about 5 years later, far away from my local and the UK that I came across this film on the movie channel and as I was bored sh*tless I decided that I had vetoed this movie for long enough. I watched it twice (as I sometimes do) the first time I watched it with too much of a dismissive attitude, and as there was something I definitely liked about the movie I watched it the second time more intently.

Franka Potente truly is a star in this movie. Franka plays Lola who has 20 minutes to get 100,000 Deutschmarks to her (idiot) boyfriend who owes it to a local gangster who will kill him if she doesn't get him the cash, and his only other alternative is to rob a supermarket which will surely land him in jail (as he is not the quickest bunny in the field so to speak). This film deals with all the 'what if' scenarios and fate, it is fast paced and keeps you watching.

So I had to admit it....those artsy fartsy tossers from my local had got it right, I loved this movie and it inspired me to look more at the independent film scene rather than accepting what Hollywood tells me too.
