The Fall (2006)

200808282042.jpg

Synopsis (possible Spoiler): In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman (Pace) begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm (Untaru), a fantastical story about 5 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.

Better late than never! What an experience. The visuals are unmatched. The child actress is amazing – and kudos to the director for letting her play out her scenes. A wonderful experience, but it might not be for everybody as you can see in the discrepancy between Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb’s reviews.

RT 55% (75 reviews) IMDb 8.1/10 (over 6000 votes)
