* {{Jerkass}}: Lola's father. In the first loop, he refuses to give Lola the money she needs to save Manni's life (rather worryingly seemingly not knowing how Manni is despite Lola having been his girlfriend for over a year), instead telling her to go home and go to bed, reveals rather coldly that he's leaving Lola and her mother to be with his mistress, and that [[FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo he's not really Lola's father]]. before ordering the security guard to throw her out. Just before TheReveal, Lola even calls him a jerk. In the second loop, he tells Lola to get a job when she needs the money to save Manni, and smacks Lola in the face for insulting his mistress.

* ItsAllAboutMe: Implied to be the case with Lola's mother. When Lola runs out at the start of the loops, without getting up from her seat int he living room, she asks Lola if she's going shopping, and without waiting for an answer, asks Lola to get her some shampoo, before getting right back to her conversation on the phone, not in the least bit concerned that Lola just ran out in a real hurry and that something may be wrong.

''Lola rennt'' (known as ''Run, Lola, Run'' in English-speaking countries) is a 1998 German film. Unique and varied, the film is difficult to assign to any specific genre. Instead, think of this movie as a video game style exploration of love and fate that blends animation sequences with live footage, except that it's techno, fast, and features a red-haired German woman [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who spends most of the movie running]].
