The Fall

Whilst at home over the Christmas period, I was lucky enough to watch a brilliant movie named The Fall. This half fiction and half reality masterpiece was Directed by Tarsem Singh in 2006. Now I am not a film fanatic at all, so excuse the Film 2011 review I may sound like I am giving. I just know that when I see a film that is going to stay in my head for the rest of my life, I have to let you know.

The story itself is set in 1920s Los Angeles and is about a stunt man who is hospitalized by, well doing stunts, and comes across a young girl who he begins to invent a fictional story for to befriend her so that she will find him pills so he can try and kill himself. The story turns into such a fantastical journey of bandits who all seek revenge against one man. It is the perfect balance of fantasy/ fiction and morbid reality.

The amazing thing about this film was that it was filmed in 20 countries and has the most beautiful scenes and landscapes. The other amazing quality is the breath taking costumes which are striking against the scenery.

I will not give the end away and I won't pretend I write reviews for a living, but if you get the chance to see this film, do watch it and you will also be taken in by the outstanding cinematography and costumes. I have put a few of my favourites here, these are the ones I think about when I am on a sweaty bus and try to picture my life in such colour and romance.

This is one of my favourite scenes from the film. Beauts!

The young girl Catinca Untaru who plays Alexandria in the film was unbelievable, she made it for me being so naive and adorable. You gotta love a kid with an accent! If you see it, or have seen it let me know what you think/ thought.
