A Complicated Way to Tell a Simple Story
One person affecting another in a relationship of opposites is the basic premise of the "The Fall." The visuals are stunning, but don't overwhelm the story because they are used to depict the story going on in the mind of the storyteller and little girl. The joy of the story's visuals is that they represent a disconnect between what the storyteller is saying and what the girl understands. We also see the real people and images that populate the fictional landscape of the girl's mind. As the story evolves, the fictional story becomes more and more disrupted by what is going on in the real world and the emotions of the two main characters. Even though this movie has an R rating, under parental supervision, this can be seen by children as young as 10 or 12 depending on their maturity level. Charles Darwin as a member of the fictional hero's band is one of the most original ideas.
