We gave it a B+

Though more sturdily constructed than his career-making adrenaline rush Run Lola Run, Tom Tykwer’s latest nonetheless finds the German director still going heavy on the music-of-chance philosophizin’. Potente — once the magenta-haired Lola, here a gauzy blonde — is a psychiatric nurse who gets badly banged up in an accident. Furmann is her tracheotomy-performing savior. He disappears, but, as Tykwer has it, fate operates with a capital F. Never mind the head trip, Princess is a muscular romantic thriller. B+
