It’s Lola’s Time

  • Simon Richter


The chiming of the church tower Glockenspiel that reminds Professor Rath of his duty to his pupils in The Blue Angel. The shopkeeper who sets his clock according to Professor Immanuel Rath’s punctual course through the town in The Blue Angel remake. Lola running into the mouth of time on the face of the monstrous clock in the opening sequence of Run Lola Run: she has precisely twenty minutes to save Manni from death. And finally, Lola’s coming on time—like a lesbian Molly Bloom—with her lover on a bed, in a San Francisco room. The Lola film is all about time.
