After learning that her boyfriend must come up with 100,000
Deutsche marks in 20 minutes or he'll be killed, Lola runs -- in three different
versions -- to find some quick cash. With Franka Potente, Moritz Bleibtreu, Herbert Knaup,
Nina Petri, Armin Rohde, Joachim Krol, Ludger Pistor, Suzanne von Borsody, Sebastian
Schipper, Julia Lindig, Lars Rudolph, Andreas Petri, Klaus Muller, Utz Krause and Beate
Finckh. In German with English subtitles. [1:21]
SEX/NUDITY 3 - A couple of kisses. We see a nude couple (from the shoulders
up) talking in bed and a few still frames -- each visible for a split second -- of a man
and woman in tiny leather S&M outfits (in one frame she appears to be hitting him with
a whip). A little cleavage is visible.
VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Many people are threatened with guns, several are shot at
but not hit and one is shot in the chest (a little blood is visible as the person
convulses and then falls to the ground). Someone is run over by a car (blood is on the
person's cheek, nose and mouth), someone is hit by a car and rolls up on the hood
(the person is not injured) and we see several car crashes (one results in injuries -- a
man flips onto a windshield and we later see him recovering in an ambulance). A few slaps,
a woman runs into another, a man headbutts another, a man hits a telephone several times,
a cartoon character is tripped and falls down a staircase, a woman throws things around an
office and a woman hits a man in the back of the head with a bag (he falls to the floor).
We see black and white still frames of a woman in surgery (we see some bloody instruments
and then some blood on the woman's face); for a split second, we also see someone
taking drugs intravenously. A woman's screams shatter glass.
PROFANITY 5 - In the subtitles we read about 5 F-words, a few anatomical
references, several scatological references, several mild obscenities, some insults and
some name-calling. [profanity glossary]
