Film Advice #6: The Fall

Good Morning
Inspirated by Zako Heskija’s tragedy “Yo ho ho” (1981), Tarsem Singh shows us  a unbeliveble epic story with strong and powerful images, elaborate dialogues and gorgeous locations. The opening title (see the video below) is accompany with music by the legendary seventh symphony of Beethoven. I think this is a film which you have to see twice or more to understand the messages and enjoy the images. I recommend the movie to the ones of you, who are interested in epic story about a group of different heroes, a story about revenge, about love. Enjoy.

Plot: In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.
