Revealing mistake: When there is a car crash, and a motorcyclist flies over one of the cars, as he rolls towards the windshield we see the whole windshield intact. Then when the motorcyclist rolls and hits the windshield, large cracks are clearly visible, way before the man hits the glass. (01:00:30)


Continuity mistake: After the failed accident, you can see Lola's bra revealed on the right side. After a cut, the shirt covers it.

Continuity mistake: You can see that Lola's bra is moving on her shoulders from shots to shots during the whole film. Best visible at the scene where she threatens her father with the gun or when she sees Manni getting killed by the car.

Continuity mistake: After Lola and Manni have robbed the supermarket, they run away down a street, but then the police drive in, blocking them, so they turn and run back down the street. As they turn and run, between shots the cars parked on the sides of the road change and some disappear. (00:29:00)


Continuity mistake: In the bank robbery scene, while Lola is escorting her father at gunpoint into the front room of the bank, she shoots out the code pad to open the door. The slide on the pistol locks to the rear as if it ran out of ammunition or jammed, however in the next cut the slide is forward again.

Continuity mistake: When the car coming out of the garage crashes into a white BMW, you can hear it. But neither the black car nor the BMW has any damage, not at the frontlights and not at the side. (00:36:50)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the first scenario, Manni and Lola are surrounded by police cars. They stand and look at them for a while, whilst turning around. The position of both of Lola's bra straps change from shot to shot. This also happens in other scenes in the film.

Revealing mistake: When the ambulance smashes into the large pane of glass, you can see the explosive charge which really shatters the glass. The glass also smashes moments before the ambulance comes into contact with it. (00:47:40)


Continuity mistake: When Lola runs to the casino with closed eyes, she is nearly hit by a truck. First you can see the driver in the background with short hair, but when he shouts at her, he has long hair. (01:04:30)

Continuity mistake: When the white BMW gets hit in the side by the Citroen it stops just past the front of the Citroen, but in a subsequent shot it is still partially in front of the Citroen. (00:37:00)

Continuity mistake: When Lola is running and then she jumps onto the bonnet of Mr Meyer's car and lies there, the rear-view mirror disappears from inside his car in one shot. (00:55:50)


Continuity mistake: When Lola is on the phone to Manni, at one point she screams so high-pitched, that the ornaments/items on top of her TV smash and fall off. Moments later, when we see a row of dominos toppling over on the TV screen, all the items are back on top of the TV, intact. (00:09:25 - 00:10:55)


Continuity mistake: During the Roulette game, after the ball lands in the 20, the wheel spins for a while, then stops. But when Lola is collecting her money, and the camera goes back into the room where everyone is staring at her, it goes up to the clock and below it, we see the wheel still slowly spinning. (01:09:35)

Continuity mistake: As Lola runs through two lines of nuns, one nun has sunglasses on, and there are three nuns walking behind her. Then when the shot cuts, we can see there are now only two nuns behind her. (00:36:15)


Visible crew/equipment: When Lola has her father with a gun to his neck, she takes him to the cash register at the front of the bank. As they first walk to it, they walk to the front, by some glass, and reflected in the top right of the glass screen is a camera. (00:43:00)


Plot hole: Mannie gives his boss the money in time minus the amount the homeless man used. What's to say he won't come looking for him later upon discovering the amount gone, see Lola's casino winnings, think his employee ripped him off then kill both of them before taking the money?

Suggested correction: The money that the homeless spent is not that significant. He can make up that amount by himself.

Herr Schuster: The ball is round, a game lasts 90 minutes, everything else is pure theory. Off we go.

More trivia for Run Lola Run

Question: I don't understand the scene in the casino. She screams and the roulette ball hits her number. What happened here?


Chosen answer: In the casino scene, Lola breaks the "rules" several times. She doesn't have enough money for a 100 mark chip, she defies the dress code, and the scream is a manifestation of her willpower overriding the laws of chance and probability itself to make the ball land on the number 20 twice in a row.
