The Fall

This week I went to see The Fall, and it was so, so beautiful. It was shot in 18 countries and the director, Tarsem Singh, funded it by taking jobs shooting advertisements in each country he wanted to shoot in. I love that so much effort and love was put into making it.

Here is the synopsis:
Roy Walker (Lee Pace), an early 20th century Hollywood stuntman, lands in the hospital after performing a dangerous stunt to impress his girlfriend. Distraught and suicidal after losing her, the bedridden Roy befriends a fellow patient, a young girl named Alexandria (Catinca Untaru). He enchants her with vivid, fantastical tales about six heroes — an Indian, an ex-slave named Ota Benga, an Italian explosives expert, Charles Darwin, a mystic, and a masked bandit — who unite to fight a common enemy, Governor Odious. Although Roy has genuine affection for Alexandria, he also has an ulterior motive: by telling tales and gaining her trust, he tricks her into stealing morphine from the hospital pharmacy so he can commit suicide.

Go see it =]
