Synopsis:
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 and take a sinister, life-threatening turn.

A visual feast - The Fall review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
18/02/2009

Director Tarsem Singh’s background and reputation was made in the world of adverts. His flair for striking visual images ideally suited to that environment, he brought his unique set of skills to The Cell, a thriller that stood out from your average Hollywood fodder in so many ways.

The Fall is his pet project, a labour of love, mainly financed by himself and filmed over the course of many years. While he may have been filming an advert on location nearby, he would discover a setting that matched his vision and do a little more work for The Fall. The result is an experience loosely held together by a thin narriative. A story does exist but the real stars here are the backdrops, which were filmed across twenty countries.

Fans of those lavish BBC documentaries that are so popular and enjoyable in high definition will enjoy The Fall. Singh has a unique vision of the world and a visionary style of his own. It’s also worth listening to his commentry, the man doesn’t pause for breath and his passion is clear and he provides remarkable insights into the film and the difficulties he faced.
