The Fall

I’ve gotten the reputation for liking “artsy” movies. I think this is more of a reflection on the moving-going public than it is on me. It isn’t like I’m seeking out Portuguese films made in the 40s. I just want to see a good film and most of the good films are a little off the beaten path.

And this brings us to “The Fall”. No, this film wasn’t too far off of that path as it was a major release. Still, it was a film that received so-so reviews and it came and went without most of us noticing it. Very few films really take you to another place, as if you have escaped real life. This film did not only did that to the viewer – it also did it to the characters in the movie. I know that might not make sense if you have not seen it.

One side note – the young girl that plays one of the leads is absolutely incredible and the film might not be the same with a different actress. I highly recommend this film and it is also safe for all ages.
