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>

Beautiful tragedy, ironically realistic...
12 June 1999 | by (Jamul, CA) – See all my reviews

A taxi cab driver and a supermodel? Sounds like a stupid romantic comedy. But if it's titled "Fall", it can't be too funny... so it gets a view, after a recommend. Boy, did I get more than I bargained for.

Viewing 'Lolita' for the first time was a tragic experience for me. I never thought I'd see anything take me down harder. 'Fall' broke every bone in my body when it threw me down.

A taxi cab driver and a supermodel? Completely unrealistic. Yet, this film came across as VERY convincing. We know this relationship can't and won't work, but that doesn't keep two people from becoming madly in love with each other.

This film has THE BEST script of any movie to date. The performances were perfect. I felt like I was just watching two people who were truly in love.

If you can handle the steep decline of 'Fall', then you simply can't miss this one.

10/10
