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>

Brilliant, sexy, high-minded, poetic, daring, etc., must-see
22 September 2000 | by (Bronx, New York, USA) – See all my reviews

I'm really, really surprised this movie's IMDB rating isn't higher, but I guess it's a love-it-or-hate-it sort of thing. Notice how the most common rating for this movie is a 10, but the second-most common is a 1? Fall is absolutely phenomenal in its passion, telling a love story so intense it's a feat to capture on film, between a supermodel and a suspiciously well-cultured cab-driver. Eric Schaeffer is truly a poet, and the poetry of his characters AND of his direction and acting make this movie just as literate and philosophical as it is sexy and risque. This movie also has a bevy of brilliant and memorable lines. As for the film's thematic foundation, watch this movie if you believe in romance, in falling in love, in rushing in headfirst and never looking back, in giving your all to one pursuit or one person or one passion... in not insisting on being so awfully safe. The movie's pretty hardcore at times. You won't find a strap-on scene in too many romantic dramadies, granted. I can see where it would offend people (or, more to the point, scare them). At the same time, I personally count it as probably my favorite romance movie, ever. After you see this movie, DO NOT log onto IMDB and vote for it; not yet. This is a movie that grows, and grows, and grows on you, weeks and months after you see it for the first time. It's sneaky that way, and the more you let that viewing experience settle into your mind, the more it has its way with you. This is one of the few movies that can surprise you AFTER you've already seen it. This is, at least, the experience of the folks *I* know who've seen it.
