The film Run Lola Run consists of different levels of reality and time. In addition to the main plot, which follows Lola and Manni, there are five other levels of reality, which show parallel plots, the future or a review of past events. Each of these complementary time levels has been created in a very specific visual way. While only the scenes with Lola and Manni were shot on 35mm film, all the others were video recordings, which are slightly blurred by the use of hand cameras.
