The Fall (2006)

In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastic story of five mythical heroes.

Visually beautiful and mesmerizing the movie has an interesting premise, but somewhere along the line the tale loses its hold on one's interest, so that the ending is not as touching as it was intended.

Maltin**1/2: "Visual opus...is alternately whimsical and ponderous, but location filming in more than 20 countries provides a panorama of stunning locations for his [Tarsem Singh's] showy, often imaginatively staged sequences."
