Fall, The (2008) 
The Fall
3/4 stars

The film as you may already have heard, looks stunning. It really does. But does that make it a good movie? It certainly helps, but as it is, its an affecting piece of cinema. The story of a young girl with a broken arm seeking solace in another patient is touching. The the patient (Lee Pace) tells the little girl a fairytale which is acted out with flashy characters and flashier visuals, and takes up half the movie. And thats the problem, while its a good story being told, the scenes in the hospital are much more engrossing. The performance from little Catinca Untaru is just beautiful, and Lee Pace as her storytelling friend is equally great. Overall, its a very good movie but not completely great.
