The FallThe Dali-like cover caught my attention and the cover represents the film very well. “The Fall” opens with a very strange scene, but basically is about a young girl who stays in some 18th century hospital where she meets a young man who tells her stories. The stories are pictured in elaborate colours, with grand stages and costumes. The dreamy atmosphere that becomes darker as the film progresses reminds a bit of “El Laberinto Del Fauno” or “The Fountain“, but is is not that elaborate of fantasyfull. A nice film that initially looks like a family film, but the last part where story and reality start to mix the light tone disappears.
