Homework #7

This film is in German so I had to look up a summary to find out what exactly was going on in this scene. In this clip from the film, “Run Lola Run,” we can see the use of jump cuts. The boyfriend, Mannie, of the main character, Lola, called Lola because he needed help getting money that he owed to somebody. Mannie tells Lola that he will get killed if he doesn’t get the money. As Lola tosses the phone, her reaction is captured with a series of jump cuts. These jump cuts allow the viewer to understand Lola’s anxiety as she tries to figure out how to obtain the money needed to save her boyfriend.
