About the Movie
Visually minded filmmaker Tarsem Singh returns to the director's chair for the first time since The Cell (2000) with this psychologically complex tale of a hospitalized paraplegic with a curious knack for storytelling. Unable to free himself from his sterile confines, the immobile patient's deepest fears form the basis of a dark story that he shares with his young companion — a little girl who visits his room as she recovers from a nasty fall. As the eerie tale unfolds, reality and fantasy gradually merge to form a strange world in which anything is possible.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: Sometimes, looking good isn't enough.
Fresh: The girl and the hospital patients and staff also turn up in his improvised adventure, extravagantly garbed by costume designer Eiko Ishioka.
Rotten: That's the trouble with candy, the eye kind or the tooth-decaying variety. It's only after you've made a glutton of yourself that you realize you haven't devoured anything particularly filling.
you will fall for The Fall
this is amazing. the pictures and scenery are genuine. i have never witnessed a more stuning and magnificent movie ever. incredible!
This movie is so beautiful to watch and so lovely to hear. The colors make you want to be there and the words make you want to cry. The dialogue is so simplistically intricate and moving; it's hard to believe that anyone can write like this. It's even harder to believe that someone has the artistic vision to find a place in the world that matches that vision. This movie is just unbelievable and the actors are incredibly talented. I have no idea why it didn't win an Oscar. Movies like this are hard to find, watch it and you'll share my opinion.
Are you trying to save my soul?
One of the most memorable and beautiful movies I've ever seen. I looked it up because Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies) was in it and I ended up watching it online, then renting it from the library 4 times. Tarsem is the king of authentic vivid visuals and I can believe in the emotion behind it. Catinca is genuine and adorable and Pace is emotional in his portayal of someone who doesn't have anything left. WATCH IT! You will regret not.
