The Fall

The Fall is a film about a young girl in a hospital who meets a paralysed former Hollywood stuntman who is kind enough to entertain her with the most imaginative and exciting stories. The stories become darker and darker while we start question the stuntman's motifs, and we are kept fascinated by the out-of-this world visuals and settings. The film was filmed all over the world and took several years to finish because the director and producer Tarsem (who worked on Lord of the Rings) and Spike Jonze (who directed REM's Losing My Religion) refused to compromise anything, and stayed true to their vision although they ran out of funds on several occasions. I am very grateful for that as this is one of my favourite films.
