Awful and Worthless Low-Budget Thriller
19 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Budapest, the aspirant writer Adam Ellis (Craig Sheffer) from New York lives with the also American Lisa Warrington (Kim Huffman) in an apartment that belongs to her chief József Kovács (Jürgen Prochnow) that Lisa worships. Kovács is a former communist and presently an entrepreneur hated by his compatriots. One day, a blonde (Hélène de Fougerolles ) is chased by two men in the subway and then on the streets; however she cuts the throat of one of them with a straight razor in a corridor in a building. Then she breaks in Adam's apartment to flee from the other man. She tries to seduce Adam and then she tells a strange story about her husband, her little daughter and Kovacs. Adam decides to help her but is the woman telling the truth?

"The Fall" is an awful and worthless low-budget thriller, with an absurd, incoherent and unbelievable story and ridiculous plot point. The behavior of the dumb Adam in a foreign country is unconvincing and I doubt that someone could be as stupid as his character is. The sex scene is absolutely unnecessary and senseless and does not add any value to the story. The final twist is ridiculous. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "Ilusão Fatal" ("Fatal Illusion")
