Storyline

Two people from completely different worlds meet by chance, thrown together as if by fate. Their attraction is immediately obvious and overwhelming. He is attracted to her beauty (she is a supermodel) and good humor; she is seduced by his charisma and honesty. With his gifts of poetry and tenderness, he opens her heart to the possibility of true love. But it takes a lot of courage to make a commitment. Is she truly in love with him? And even if she is, will she able to leave the cosmopolitan, superficial lifestyle to be with him? Written by <amity@lungfish.com>

Everything isn't a 1 or 10!!
6 June 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews



58 percent of the people rating "Fall" gave it a 1 or a 10 -- do you know how few movies actually deserve either rating? Saying Amanda De Cadanet is "butt-ugly" is a ridiculous statement by someone trying to look smart through negative hyperbole. Saying this film has "THE BEST script of any movie to date" is equally ignorant.

OK, so De Cadanet isn't the most beautiful woman in the world, but what are the odds the most beautiful woman in the world can act worth a flip and is available for an indie film? Yes, "Fall" overreaches. Yes, it could have used a less myopic editor. Parts of Schaeffer's poetry is stupid, but part of it is also beautiful. This is a flawed film, but one with ambition and a real heart that succeeds on a grander scale than it fails. It also has a world-class soundtrack -- or would, if one had ever been produced.

Give the filmmakers and the IMDB community enough respect to make thoughtful comments instead of being an automaton who can only think something is great or terrible. I'll now descend my soap box. Thank you for your consideration. :-)
