There are two good aspects to this DVD - the blue -ray box has an interesting cover, and Lee Pace gives a good performance - but in a badly underwritten part.

The plot is dreadfully badly written. Much of it is a foolish fairy tale comprised of bad acting, costumes rejected from an Off-Broadway musical, illogal moments, villains that one would laugh at except...

There are two good aspects to this DVD - the blue -ray box has an interesting cover, and Lee Pace gives a good performance - but in a badly underwritten part.

The plot is dreadfully badly written. Much of it is a foolish fairy tale comprised of bad acting, costumes rejected from an Off-Broadway musical, illogal moments, villains that one would laugh at except that they are too stupid, which gives any hero no chance to be one. One major part is performed by an untalented child who reads her lines as though she has been drugged. The true plot was Lee Pace's storyline - but it really isn't here. We get to know nothing about him except that he has a cathartic moment, but why...no true, logical clue. He has no past and no future and all that is clear about his present is that he wants to kill himself because he can't feel his toes.If you cannot care about your main character, no fault of the actor, why bother with a film that presents him as seriously, mysteriously, "we can't think of a reason why" in a hospital where the staff seems almost totally absent.
The director should never be let near another script or camera, and the screenplay is written with all the skill of grade one students who have no true idea of human emotions or interactions.

Spike Jonze, credited with the production, discredited would be more accurate, must have had a juicy tax break with the losses this piece occurred. It was, as a previous reviewer noted, filmed in many countries. It could all have been done in any Southwestern state. I suspect most countries kicked them out when they saw what a mess it was.

Poor Lee Pace. he is one of the most talented and underrated of actors. This movie must have seriously damaged him as a commodity in movie-making. Pity.

Don't buy it. Don't rent it. Avoid it on television. It is an extremely dull, silly, unintelligently made film that will waste your time and raise your blood pressure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visually Arresting!, Sept. 29 2008
By 
Martin A Hogan "Marty From SF" (San Francisco Bay Area) - See all my reviews

Ce commentaire est de: The Fall (Sous-titres français) (DVD)
A movie stuntman (Lee Pace from "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day") in early 1920's Los Angeles is laid-up from a serious fall and is suicidal. An inquisitive little girl (amazingly cute Catinca Untaru) begins asking him questions and before anyone realizes it, he begins to tell her fanciful stories. Director Tarsem Singh channels Spielberg with his amazing and enormously grand cinematography. The loosely told love story with wild adventurers, heroes and princesses is shown in colorfully large scale in dramatic places. From crystal clear waters of an ocean reef to sand deserts and the Taj Mahal, the look is nothing short of mesmerizing (ever seen an elephant swim in a lush reef filmed from underneath?) The despondent stuntman tells the story in hopes of getting the young girl to procure him a bottle of lethal morphine. In the process, his story grows and progresses into wild and visually arresting backdrops. Costumes and characters are played out in over twenty countries with no CGI effects - all the visuals were done with thousands of extras and enormous outdoor sets. The story of the stuntman and the little girl takes on its own life and the two intertwine with dramatic and endearing results. The ending is rich, clever and more than satisfying. This is a film that has to be seen to be believed. They just don't make them like this anymore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Cinematography, Sept. 20 2009

Ce commentaire est de: The Fall (Sous-titres français) (DVD)
Alexandria (played by Catinca Untaru) is a precocious 6-year-old girl who has broken her arm and must remain in hospital. But she doesn't spend much time in bed, and instead explores the people and rooms of the hospital until she befriends stunt actor Roy (Lee Pace from "Pushing Daisies"), who is bedridden after a bad stunt accident. Roy enchants Alexandria with stories about bandits, princesses, and Indians. This is where director Tarsem ("The Cell") weaves in fantasy sequences, and creates a visual masterpiece with brilliant colours and surreal landscapes of epic proportions. The acting is great - Catinca is genuine and charmingly sweet, and Lee is perfect as the broken anti-hero.

This may not be Oscar-worthy drama, but the visuals in this movie are simply amazing. Plus, I really liked the performance from Lee Pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie is a gem, Jan. 20 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
This is one of those gems-of-a-movie that hardly anyone has heard about! Everybody needs to see this. I discovered it on YouTube and it was my go-to thing whenever I was going through a difficult time in my life. The acting is superb, the scenery is spectacular, and the story is timeless.

It was shipped to me in a matter of 3 days, the product was in amazing condition, and is now in my basement next to the TV, just waiting to be watched!! I'm so glad I own it now so that I can watch it over and over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Visually stunning, Jan. 13 2014
Achat vérifié(Quest-ce que cest?)
First of all, the films was shot across the globe at many scenic locations. Camera work was sharp and precise. So while you may find the plot/story a tad childish, the visual aspect, just from the Blu-ray disc I have, more than compensates for this shortfall. The little child actress that played the inquisitive 5-year-old girl was wonderful. That's another bonus. So if you are in the mood for escapism and fantasy, get this disc for multiple, future viewings. It has been a great investment for me.

Ce commentaire est de: The Fall (Sous-titres français) (DVD)
The non-CGI scenery and the acting of the child antagonist make it worth a watch. The interweaving of the "fairy-tale" story line and the "real life" characters has been done before, but it works here.

An exciting adventure, well suited for the whole family. 2 boys, 15 and 13 watched and were kept involved the whole movie.
They liked the story and the action/adventure.
