Movie Review – Fall, The (2008)

Visually, one of the most astonishing films I’ve ever seen. Breathtaking cinematography almost threatens to overpower the elegant fantasy story, interwoven with a somewhat dark reality in which the girl and her stuntman friend live. The performance by then-6 year old Catinca Untaru is gorgeous, even if the spontaneous dialogue feels a little amateurish, and if for no other reason than to see Tarsem’s magnificent visual style in action, The Fall is essential viewing.
