Hilarious homage to Run Lola Run
30 September 2005 | by uncle_kyleSee all my reviews

The Rece!pt is based loosely on Run Lola Run, an excellent film that was more of a suspense/drama/romance. You don't need to have seen the original to enjoy this short comedy, though; that's a testament to how well the story was developed. The writers took the basic concept - that one member of a couple needs the other's help, but only if they can show up quickly enough - and make the most of it in about 15 minutes of screen time. The same basic structure is followed as in Run Lola Run. I'm a big fan of "Lola", but I think they've actually improved on it here. This is a leaner script, each piece really building strongly on the last, with an excellent production backing it up. The actors really seem to accept their surrealistic world and work naturally within it (even the smaller parts become important in telling the story, such as Kristen Bell's "Pretty Girl" scenes). Something else of note - the music and editing are superb. In particular, there are several scenes with outstanding synchrony between images and music. It's obvious that a lot of care went into making this film.

This is a great example of a true homage - it's not a strict parody, it's not derivative, it's just very funny while staying true to the characters.

If you've seen "Run Lola Run!", you'll get even more out of this short film, but even if you haven't, it's very worth your time.

This short film played at the San Diego Film Festival among a collection of short comedy films. Short films don't tend to make it to the video store or to netflix :( Hopefully The Rece!pt will make its way around the festival circuit, so if you get a chance to see it, do so.
