In The Fall, a little girl is in a hospital with a broken arm she suffered in a fall. She befriends another patient who keeps her company by telling an epic tale. At first he is using her, then the friendship takes command (after another fall). The imagery of falling runs through the film, and is significant at the very end. The story is a colorful fantasy of beautiful images. Poignant, poetic, melodramatic and sweet. I liked this one.
