The kind of movie you'll love or hate. I loved it!
20 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Because of a "friend of a friend" I had the opportunity to see this new Spanish movie produced by Antonio Banderas and directed by Francisco Javier Gutierrez in the last Berlin International Film Festival. I have to confess that I'm not "catastrophe's movies friendly" but this film really surprised me. The movie is about the world ending in 3 days due to the imminent fall of a meteorite, however it actually focuses more on people's behaviour in a small town in the south of Spain which causes the audience to ask themselves "what would you do in your last 3 days of life?, would you try to enjoy your last moments or just take the chance to take revenge against the people you hate?. Good question.

I previously knew of director Francisco J. Gutierrez for his short film "Brasil" which was award winning in several festivals around the world. It is quite common to see young directors start and finish their professional life with an original and "short-life-short-film", but on this occasion Francisco J. really used the money in the right way. 3 days holds your attention from the beginning to the end, the characters are very real and really remind you of the people in your neighbourhood or office. Also the rhythm is correct and the photography just fantastic. From my point of view, a new cinema age is starting in Spain and "Before the Fall" is an example of it. Well done.
