•Getting super powers
•Fighting off obstacles Introduces the plot of the story
Reiterates the important of time Opening scene of the film Use of Montage Sequences emphasizes the character’s racing thoughts Lola runs to the bank where her father is the manager of and attempts to get 100,000 marks by convincing him to let her borrow it

Manni goes through with burglarizing the grocery store and robbing its patronsLola tries to persuade Manni to leave, but ultimately decides to helpLola and Manni succeed and run, only to be surrounded by the police Manni throws the bag of money in the air in frustration, distracting an officer and accidentally shoots Lola in the chest Woman with the baby: calls Lola a “bitch” for almost colliding into her

"The spiral is an archetypal symbol that represents cosmic force." -Carl Jung Some consider the spiral a symbol of the spiritual journey. It is also considered to represent the evolutionary process of learning and growing. Spirals: Clocks Run 3
“Cinema that interests me is cinema about openings, unresolved questions and experiments; cinema that explores the possibilities offered by narrative and by associations, without refusing chaos, chance, destiny or the unexpected.”
-Tom Tykwer

Lola jumps into the back of the ambulance, where the bank's security guard is suffering from a heart attack , again demonstrating her free will The film ends with the sound of a camera warming up,
much in the same way insights into the future were portrayed
in other runs. Jumps over animated dog with much determination, even growling, foreshadows a successful run Roulette is a game of chance, but she somehow manipulates it through will. Scenes without Lola/Manni appear to be recorded on a camcorder; metafictional Red Glass The Game of Life:
Gonzalo Frasca (game designer) defines a game as an “activity organized under a system of rules that defines a victory or a defeat, a gain or a loss.”  The basic rules of the game are straightforward.  Lola needs to obtain an object (one hundred thousand marks) by a certain time period (12:00) to win.

The movie is somewhat like a video game. There is a map or obstacle course (Berlin). A mission to complete within a 20 minute time period. Running fast-paced through the city. (Example: Grand Theft Auto)

Spinning of roulette wheel can be heard as she thinks of possible people to help her.
We can play games over and over again and each time we learn something new to help us along the way. (Example: Avoiding the dog in the stairwell, safety on the gun, and the stolen bike)

In what ways does Lola break the rules of the game? THEMES "Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens."-Ralph Waldo Emerson The clock represents time and the cycle of life (birth, growth, death, and rebirth). Symbol of danger,warning, and love. Represents the fragility of life. Repeatedly we see Lola break glass with her screaming, highlighting her panic and power Cohabitating Abstracts Movie seemingly tolerates paradox with acceptance of free will, chance, and determinism
Major contributing factor, however, is persistence of will. Run Lola Run and Vertigo Spirals
