The Princess and the Warrior

Director Tom Tykwer follows up his kinetic smash Run, Lola, Run with this fractured fairy tale of a shy psychiatric nurse (Lola's Franka Potente) rescued from a protentially deadly traffic accident by a mysterious stranger (Benno Fürmann). Believing this man to be her one true love, our heroine engages in a Cinderella-like quest to find him. Tykwer's narrative is refreshingly unpredictable, but veers so much from the norm that it occasinally skids of the road entirely. Sometimes it's difficult to keep sight of these characters amid their tangled lives and emotions. The acting, however, is magnetic, with Franka Potente contributing another incredible performance. 129 minutes
