Storyline

Lola is an eccentric woman in her 30s who lives in a daze of girlish expectations, not knowing what to believe, or what to expect from life, and never clear about where things are heading. Her relationship is in a constant state of confusion, mostly because her husband Mike behaves more like her father than a partner. He is short-tempered and egotistical, with little tolerance for her indecisiveness, so the two coexist in a lavish environment of sterility and tension. Lola's life takes a sudden turn when she saves the life of a mysterious woman. Sandra is everything Lola wants to be: confident, outspoken, in control of her destiny. But the promise of a relationship between the two women is cut short when Sandra's dark past catches up with her. On the run from this fateful encounter, but too scared to return home, Lola goes on the road to fulfill the destiny of a woman she barely knows. As she moves through the landscape toward Sandra's childhood home, she slowly starts to absorb her ... Written by Anonymous

A prime example of a film that should have been 15 minutes shorter.
5 February 2002 | by (Prince George, B.C., Canada) – See all my reviews

Lola is a perfect example of a movie that should have been at least 15 minutes shorter. There simply isn't enough story here to warrant Lola a tag of being a good film.

Don't get me wrong, Lola isn't terrible. The acting is good. The Sandra and Lola characters are polished fairly well. But seeing the main character walking in downtown Vancouver doing almost nothing will keep a moviegoers attention for so long.

I gave Lola 6 out of 10.
