Run Lola Run Subtitles German ((INSTALL))
'Run Lola Run' features two Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround tracks -- an original German language mix and an English dub for anyone who can't stand subtitles. Both tracks are particularly strong, but the German mix is my track of choice since I feel dubbed dialogue always seems disjointed from the soundfield (even when I close my eyes and simply listen).
Run Lola Run subtitles German
Whether "Run Lola Run," in German with English subtitles, gets beyond novelty is the question. For all its hyperactivity and slam-bang structural experiments -- split- screen action, segments shot on film mixed with others on video -- the result is an emotional blank.
Written (in German, with English subtitles) and directed by Tom Tykwer; director of photography, Frank Griebe; edited by Mathilde Bonnefoy; music by Tykwer, Johnny Klimek and Reinhold Heil; set designer, Alexander Manasse; produced by Stefan Arndt; released by Sony Pictures Classics.
Run Lola Run - Lola rennt - 1998 German film directed by Tom Tykwer. After a botched money delivery, Lola has 20 minutes to come up with 100,000 Deutschmarks. Stars Franka Potente/ Rated R for some violence and language. In German with optional subtitles in English or French, 81 minutes.
The video tape of "Yasemin" delivered to WMU for screening was incompatible with equipment available on campus and did not contain English subtitles, according to Dr. Olivia Gabor-Peirce, assistant professor of German, who organizes the series. "At this late date, our only option was to cancel the showing of the film."
OK, I'll confess. I'm German. To me, there wasn't anything "foreign" about Run Lola Run. I recognized the Berlin street corners she passes on her way through the city. I didn't even have to read the subtitles. Watching this movie in a theater in New Orleans made me more than a little bit homesick. So, to be up front about it: When I tell you I loved this movie, I'm biased.
In some of the darker scenes the shadows look slightly washed out -- this should have been darkened a bit. Other than that minor fault, I could not find any problem with the picture that pertained specifically to the transfer itself. I could see no compression artifacts, certainly no edge enhancement nor any problems with saturation. There were times when the picture seemed a bit soft, particular in background and long distance shots, but I attribute that to the filming techniques and not the transfer. Overall I would say, apart from the aforementioned washed out blacks, what you are seeing on this disc is the film as it was intended.The AudioThe audio options available are German and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless, and Portuguese and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1. I chose to listen to the German TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack with English subtitles turned on, because I loathe dubbed audio tracks for live action films. Although the original language lossless track was decent, it was certainly not perfect. Dialogue was not always as clear as it could have been and the driving Electronica soundtrack could have used more of a boost in the lower frequencies. In fact, the entire mix was slightly boosted in the midrange and rolled-off in the upper and lower frequencies just a tad, resulting in a somewhat dull, ever so slightly thin sound. Although the surround channels were used, it sounded less discrete to my ears than it did like a reprocessed 2-channel mix.The ExtrasThere are not many extras provided on this release. There is the customary audio commentary track with director Tom Tykwer and Franka Potente, a behind-the-scenes making-of featurette of sorts entitled "Still Running" (HD/16:9), in which director Tom Tykwer and Franka Potente are interviewed, a "Blu-ray Disc is High Definition" (HD/16:9) promo, and a promo for Close Encounters of the Third Kind 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition (HD/16:9).Final Thoughts An internationally acclaimed title worthy of the best high definition Blu-ray treatment, this Blu-ray Disc release will be quite satisfying to all fans of this experimental classic. The picture and sound quality aren't perfect, but still offer a high enough quality that they will not disappoint and will make this the definitive version of this title on disc for years to come.Where to Buy:

Linguistic concerns: The speed of the movie is reflected in the dialogues: the German is very modern and full of slang used by young Germans. This can be difficult to understand without subtitles.
This is one of the more inventive movies of the last decade, I would think. It was new, fresh and very different when it came out in the late '90s and still is unique and enjoyable as of this review in early 2006.It's short - 81 minutes - but plenty long when you consider it's three versions of the same story, each version about 25 minutes after an opening introduction.That may sound too repetitive or boring for those who haven't seen this, but it is anything but overplayed thanks to the innovative camera-work and interesting angles on the same story. Watching it on DVD was better than the theater because the 5.1 sound is superior, plus you have the option of a good dubbed version or the original German with English subtitles. I use either, depending on my mood but I lean toward the German with subtitles.Franke Potente, who has since gone on to become better known around the world from the "Bourne" films, is the centerpiece of this film and very, very interesting. The looks of shock on her face, her flaming red hair and wild general appearance and the crazy things that happen to her are always fun to watch and hear. Added to the unique cinematography, which includes tricks here and there, is a pulsating electronic soundtrack that brings added life to this already kinetic, involving film. The high rating I give this film could really be summed up in two words: DIFFERENT and FUN.
You rarely see good german movies that examine German culture outside of Germany. However, this 2001 film does an excellent job of portraying the challenges of culture shock for those who fled Germany during WWII.
