The perfect movie to make you forget you're watching subtitles. It has fun action, with unexpected drama blended in, and a unique visual style. You'll always remember this viewer experience as it kind of takes your breath away with its relentless pace. Truly a breakthrough performance for Franka Potente. This flim, along with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon & Amelie, elevated foreign films forever.
It has humor, suspense, romance, action from beginning to end, and a remarkably complex structure that touches on some rather intellectual themes - free will versus determinism, for example.

Saw this when it first came out. Innovative exploration of the idea that desire and persistence can get you what you want in the end.

Pro/con (Deutsch-phobia-level-dependent): it's in German
I couldn't watch this the first time I tried it. The movie was just too intense for me. I'm so glad I tried again, however. Discovering Tom Tykwer was a revelation to me and Run Lola Run is a blast. Rarely do you find a film that's so energetic and frenzied that wants to give you more than a shallow adrenaline rush. This film is ingenius.
