  • It's an achingly beautiful movie and a triumph of location scouting, with more cosmopolitan spectacle than the past three Indiana Jones and James Bond movies combined. show more

  • The Fall is aptly named not only because it pertains to a tragic descent but because viewers will feel as if they have plunged headlong into an alternate universe with this dazzling adult fairy tale. show more

  • Dazzling and delirious, The Fall is a celebration of cinema, of old-fashioned storytelling and globe-hopping spectacle. show more

    Our daughter had us watch this tonight...I loved it! The story was a little crazy, but fun, once we figured out what was going on. Catinca Untaru is adorable! I highly recommend this movie!

    This little girl was GREAT in this film. My wife & I almost put this film away. Due to her mannersims, she caught my heart. The film itself was mediocre and quite slow in many parts. I hope she has a lot of success. I have not heard of her in anything else.

    The trailer is off the charts... the two main characters are superb...the visuals are unmatched and highly artistic... color is used with the skill of a master...the storytelling is fun and interesting... and yes, I wish the "promise" of a gut-wrenching emotional happening hinted at in the trailer were actually in the movie... IF the movie's overall plot were better, this would be a best picture winner. I highly recommend it to lovers of art, color, beauty and to anyone who appreciates great moviemaking.
