‘Lola’ runs up German Film kudos

'23,' 'Night' take silver nods

BERLIN — “Run Lola Run,” the runaway German hit of 1998, walked away with the lion’s share of prizes Thursday at the German Film awards.

“Run Lola Run” took the Film Band in Gold, the top accolade awarded for film.

Hardware exchange

Tom Tykwer, awarded best director for “Run Lola Run,” can now return Wim Wender’s prize from last year that the eminent director lent the hotshot helmer until he got his own.

Other prizes going to “Lola” were for Herbert Knaup as best supporting actor and to Nina Petri, who took best supporting actress for her performances in both “Run Lola Run” and Doris Doerrie’s “Am I Pretty?”

Best editing went to the film’s cutter, Mathilde Bonnesoy, and best camera to Frank Griebe, who has lensed all of Tykwer’s films.

Film Bands in Silver in the best film category went to both Hans-Christian Schmid’s thriller “23,” based on a true story of young German hackers who passed on U.S. secrets to Russia, and to Andreas Dresen’s “Night Shapes,” the competition entry at this year’s Berlin Intl. Film Fest.

Fest redux

Mirroring the Berlin fest’s awards, best actress awards went to Juliane Koehler and Maria Schrader for “Aimee & Jaguar,” a biopic about an Aryan housewife (Koehler) who falls in love with a streetwise Jewish journalist (Schrader). Schrader was also honored for her role in “Meshugge.”

Best actor went to newcomer August Diehl for his role in “23.” Best music nod went to local star Nikki Reiser for the scores to “Meshugge” and Caroline Link’s kiddie pic “Annaluise and Anton.”
