The Fall (4/5)

A Little Blessing In Disguise.

I saw this film Saturday last week. It seemed like one of those artistic and beautiful films, so I decided to watch it. As soon as I heard that Tarsem Singh (The Cell) was the director, it really caught my interest, since The Cell withholds one of the most innovative and beautiful scenography and photo I have seen. My expectations were far from turned down. The Fall is even more beautiful, illusory than The Cell, and some of the sets are almost daunting in their appearance. To give a perhaps better picture of my meaning, the photo reminds me of a mix between Salvador Dalí and Zdzislaw Beksinski.

I will cite the plot from IMDB’s summary: “In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about five mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.”

I was amazed by the captivating acting, especially the prestation of the young Catinca Untaru as one of the lead roles since she was but five years old when the film was shot. The transitions between fantasy and reality were the best though, and how the tale changed depending on the character’s mood. This film is a must-see, and a must-have for the film collection.

I give The Fall 4 out of 5. Will definitely buy this one.
