May be all Eurotrash flash, but it's not often that a film packs this much visceral punch.

The kind of thing Franz Kafka might have dreamed up, had he only had access to a daily dose of MTV.

Chicago Reader by Jonathan Rosenbaum

About as entertaining as a no-brainer can be--a lot more fun, for my money, than a cornball theme-park ride like "Speed," and every bit as fast moving. But don't expect much of an aftertaste.

Los Angeles Times by Kenneth Turan

As essential in its own way as Anton Karas' celebrated zither work was to "The Third Man," Lola's music is perfectly suited to the film's aims and just about addictive in its throbbing, insinuating rhythms.

TV Guide Magazine by Maitland McDonagh

The film's extra-special trick, the one that kicks in under your radar because it's so busy with all the flash, is that it makes you care deeply for Lola and Manni.

San Francisco Chronicle by Peter Stack

The action is so fast that the viewer almost breaks out in a sweat...Ultimately vapid. Lola never does develop as a character, and the fuss seems ultimately pointless.
