A visual delight – The Fall the movie

April 1, 2009

I was absolutely blown away with the visual wonder that is ‘The Fall‘. Full of romance, intrigue and adventure, Tarsem Singh’s masterpiece will sweep you away to far off lands and win you over with it’s charming story.

Set in a Los Angeles hospital in the early 1920s, a heartbroken (and maybe body-broken) stuntman strikes up a friendship with a fellow patient, the most adorable little Romanian girl named Alexandria, and proceeds to tell her a fantastical “epic of love and revenge”. As the story proceeds, their world at the hospital becomes blended with exotic fantasy.

Set in over eighteen countries – South Africa, India, Namibia and Argentina, just to name a few, it captures the imagination with an amazing combination of gorgeous natural and architectural wonders combined with amazing costumes.

There was an incredible amount of attention paid to each detail. What a gorgeous shot! (above), from the silhouette of the car to the two combatant characters set against an architectural wonder –  each scene plays out like a work of moving art.

Just one of the amazing shots.  I love the details of this costume, this  head-dress is just exquisite.

Each scene I kept thinking – I have to go there! and there! and there! – each location seemingly more beautiful than the last…

Wow – this place looks like an Escher puzzle – unbelievable that it actually exists in real life!

A magical scene with the main characters in this gorgeous round courtyard surrounded by scores of spinning  Sufi dancers.

I could go on – go watch it for yourself and let me know what you think!
