The Fall (2006): review: 4/10

"Googly! Googly! Googly!"

In a hospital in LA, an injured stuntman and a small girl entertain each other with heroic tales.

Both stuntman and girl are most beguiling, as are the fantastic shots from India, but the film is simply too long, so it's charms become lost as ideas are repeated or over-explored, rendering them wearisome.

Thus the film sadly serves to illustrate the wise artists maxim "concision is a virtue in art".
