The Fall

Leafing through the Arts section of today’s newspaper, my eye was caught by the rather arresting Daliesque image in the poster for the film The Fall. The film opens here in The Netherlands this week. The review in the newspaper was positive and intriguing. Looking at the IMDb entry for the film, I see that it was actually made in 2006, so it’s taken some time to find distribution. I suspect that it has much to do with the mismatch between the uniqueness of the director’s vision and the grubby horizons of the suits who run Hollywood. User comments in the IMDb entry are also overwhelmingly positive. The clincher for me is the comment that: "If you liked Cinema Paradiso and the Princess Bride then you will also love this film". Say no more, I want to see this film. The trailer, which can be viewed on the film’s web site, only increases my desire.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
