Fall, The (2008) 
The Fall is Better Than Pan's Labyrinth
3/4 stars

Some really interesting visuals tha reminded me of The Cell (for obvious reasons), Hero (because of the strong colors), Pan's Labyrinth, and even The Princess Bride. All of which, I consider to be at least "good." The Fall is better than Pan's Labyrinth mostly because of the story and how it interwines with real life. While Pan's Labyrinth tries to pretend that the fairy tale is true, The Fall does not.

The acting is superb all around with both the lead "stunt man" and the little girl taking most of the lines. While they both sort of play multiple characters, it is clear that they can act in multiple settings.

The visuals in this thing really made the movie good for me. It actually reminded me of a Salvador Dali painting at times. Beyond the visuals though, the story was rather thin and would break away from the action many times. I was drawn more to the mythical story rather than to the physical story. Like pan's labyrinth, I feel the break is unnecessary and can actually be really well (see Princess Bride).

It was a good movie and i am really glad I saw it. I would put this on your movies to watch list 2008 if you enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth.
