"Catinca Untaru is engaging and endearing in her role and definately one to look out for as her career progresses."

It is a rare treat to go into a film like this, since it's not one that I would venture to the cinema to see but that would be a mistake. Not only is it visually stunning but keeps you interested and engaged with the characters. I wouldn't call it a period film, although it is set in 1920's Los Angeles.

The story revolves around the unlikely friendship of Alexandria (Catinca Untaru) a young immigrant girl and Roy Walker (Lee Pace) a maimed stuntman, who meet in the hospital where they are being treated.

Roy captivates her with an epic and fantastical story about five adventurers brought together by a common goal of revenge against Governor Odious (Daniel Caltagirone), who has hurt them all in very similar ways.

The landscapes of the film are stunning, that take Alexandria far from the day-to-day goings on of the hospital, where being as young as she is her vivid imagination soon takes over.

The Fall is emotionally engaging in tone, but still has its laughs along the way. A lot of which come from the the interplay between Roy and Alexandria, since she doesn't completely understand english, which adds to her adorability and charm, and overall heart warming. Also, watch out for her translating to the doctor, I found it quite hilarious.

The Chief Mystic (Ketut Rina) is brilliant, the chanting and dancing is so well choreographed, you won't be able to stop yourself from tapping your feet to the rhythm.

Infact, the whole cast (some of whom have dual roles) are great, right down to Sean Gilder who plays Walt Purdy, a very grumpy sole, and Justine Waddell who plays the sweet and nurturing Sister Evelyn.

Catinca Untaru is engaging and endearing in her role and definately one to look out for as her career progresses. I see big things for this little girl who has a lot of charm that is sure to make her a star this side of Romania.

The fall is superbly directed by Tarsem (The Cell, REM's music video for 'Losing My Religion') and written wonderfully by Dan Gilroy and Nico Soultanakis, the team seemingly work very well together and shows a good chance of a team up again in the future.

It's very difficult to find anything wrong with this film, is original and engaging, a must see!
