Storyline

A talented, but distracted photographer, Lola, on the verge of success in both love and work, could lose it all if she doesn't make it to a crucial meeting on time. But, as usual, Lola is late. With her job and girlfriend on the line, she has three chances to make it right. In a desperate race through the streets and back rooms of San Francisco, time grows short-will Lola make it? Will she come at all? With a pop sensibility that mixes live action, animation and still photography, And Then Came Lola explores love's age old question in a fresh new way, "If you try, try again, will you finally get it right?" Written by M. Siler and E. Seidler

Bin It.
9 January 2014 | by Jen-09See all my reviews

I actually watched this before I watched Run Lola Run (the German film that this is sort of based on), so my initial opinion was unbiased. Very rarely do I turn a film off but this was one of the few- I think I only made it about half an hour in.

Lola's girlfriend has a job interview, she forgets her documents (or something to that effect) and Lola has to run through San Francisco to get them to her. As she is running she encounters various scenarios that get in her way- the scenarios I actually managed to sit through were ridiculous. I am trying to refrain from comparing it to Run Lola Run which I have now watched but it is hard not to. And Then Came Lola completely lacks the urgency of Run Lola Run (in which her boyfriend gets tangled up in a drug deal and loses the money he needs to pay up).

This film seems to try too hard to say Look! We made a movie with lesbians in it! That also seems to be the main pro in the positive reviews of the film I've read. Although its great to see people trying to make this more the norm in movies, it would have been far better to have made an original film with a decent plot.
