Tykwer focuses on the twenty-minutes that Lola has, and shows that twenty-minutes three times over, each time with small differences will affect the outcome of the characters. We also see early on that he might have a heart condition.
This film grabs the audience from the very beginning and proceeds to take them on an intense ride filled with lows and highs. However, the new additions added by Tykwer are very clever and link in perfectly, which will have you gasping for more. Where do we come from?

The audience was taken away on this fast pace exhilarating ride which in turn warrants those watching to think about the circular narrative and its elements. How do we know what we think we know?
