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.

Completely agree with the Chicago Sun. A wonderful film.

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

It is off the beaten path of all summer movies. It captivates you with many sights rarely seen in a movie. The dialogue between Catinca Untaru and Lee Pace is hilarious. I would definitely recommend this film to you if you enjoyed "The Princess Bride" and/or "Pan's Labyrinth". Go see this movie!

Tarsem and his screenwriting collaborators aren't able to come up with enough interesting justifications for their sudden shifts, and soon the shape-shifting yarn just feels like lazy storytelling. Full Review

The Fall is often an affectionate caricature itself, but one of astonishing beauty, featuring two heartfelt performances from Untaru and the tender, often mordantly funny Pace. They're perfect foils for Tarsem's gorgeous tone poem to cinema as a medium of magic and miracles, stories and lies. Full Review

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. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
This convoluted, arbitrary, overlong whimsy will strike most grown-ups as childish, and is far too violent and pretentious for kids. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Pretty pictures - thats what The Fall has to offer. Full Review
