About the Movie
While on a camping trip, Thomas's only daughter, Lara, is killed by a logging truck in a hit-and-run accident for which the driver, Luke, serves a prison sentence. Stricken with grief, Thomas sheds his urban life and his identity, and moves to the remote town where Lara was killed. There he takes on a new name, Chris, and finds work as a logger. When Luke is released from prison and returns to work, Chris connives to work as his partner in dangerously high tree-logging work. Every time Luke climbs, Chris holds his life in his hands. A stunning debut by Australian director Kasimir Burgess, Fell is an entrancing and enigmatic drama; a dreamlike, visually resplendent tale of nature, revenge and redemption.
I like a good deep and thought provoking movie - this just jumped, and had potential to be so much more!
Beautifully shot and some tense moments but overall the pace of the film is too slow and could have been much more engaging.
I just wanted to say that I know the girl who plays the daughter. I haven't seen the movie but kind of want to to see how good she is.
