Lola rennt by Tom Tykwer ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in German and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Manni is very possibly the most incompetent criminal ever. His very first day on the job and he inadvertently loses 200,000 marks just 20 minutes before he's due to deliver it to his bosses. Like any sane man, he calls his girlfriend--Lola will know what to do!

She charges through a flock of nuns (take that, Catholicism!), robs a huge bank (take that, Capitalism!), and stops a roulette wheel with her glass-shattering scream (take that, Chance!), and all opponents are mown down by her openness, crazed optimism, and a firm belief in the endless possibilities of true love

Eine Reise, so verrückt wie unvergesslich! Vincent haut ab! Raus aus der Klinik, in der er lernen sollte, mit seinem Tourettesyndrom umzugehen. Er will unbedingt nach Italien ans Meer - und dabei kommt er noch nicht mal bis zum Bäcker, sagt sein Vater. In der Jackentasche hat Vincent eine Bonbondose mit der Asche seiner Mutter. Im geklauten Auto sitzen die magersüchtige Marie, die ihn zur Flucht überredet hat und sein zwangsneurotischer Zimmergenosse Alexander, der die Flucht verpetzen wollte. Vincents Trip nach Italien ist eine Katastrophe für seinen Vater: Der ehrgeizige Lokalpolitiker steckt gerade mitten im Wahlkampf und interessiert sich nur für seinen guten Ruf, während die Psychologin Frau Dr. Rose in ständiger Sorge um ihren unberechenbaren Schützlinge ist. Gemeinsam nehme die beiden die Verfolgung auf. Vincent, Marie und Alexander setzen alles daran, das Leben da draussen auf ihre Weise zu meistern - auch wenn sie sich dabei ständig auf die Nerven gehen. Am Ende der Reise ist zwar niemand geheilt, aber alles anders. (Quelle CeDe)
