You know her and love her from the Bourne movies and the movie Blow, but Franka Potente made a huge splash long ago in a small German indie move named Run Lola Run, you may also find it in your video store under it's German name Lola Rennt. The premise is a good one; imagine if you were walking to work and instead of walking straight at the light, you walked two blocks left before going across the street. How might your entire life change? What if you left your house this morning just a few seconds later, how might your life be affected? Franka was the girlfriend of director Tom Tykwer and he wrote this part FOR her. In fact, he felt that letting someone else write the soundtrack would mess up his movie so he not only wrote, produced and directed it, he wrote the soundtrack. It's one of the best soundtracks in any movie ever made. This movie has been referred to as the Citizen Kane of music videos. If you get the soundtrack, the cut 'Casino' is one of Johnny's favorite tunes anywhere, movies or no.
In another life Franka Potente will be Johnny's wife, he absolutely adores her. And Franka, if you Google your name and find us here in our humble Jersey City offices, stop by, lunch or dinner is on us. AND since Johnny has a celebrity clause in his marriage, you know, anything is possible after a few glasses of German beer.
Here is the super HAWT Franka Potente with 'Believe'.
