Visually minded filmmaker Tarsem Singh returns to the director's chair for the first time since The Cell (2000) with this psychologically complex tale of a hospitalized paraplegic with a curious knack for storytelling. Unable to free himself from his sterile confines, the immobile patient's deepest fears form the basis of a dark story that he shares with his young companion -- a little girl who visits his room as she recovers from a nasty fall. As the eerie tale unfolds, reality and fantasy gradually merge to form a strange world in which anything is possible. (

Director Tarsem (he's dropped the "Singh") reportedly had been carrying around this story for about twenty years, and it shows. "The Fall" is a gorgeous labor of love, and if its fantastical story-within-a-story meanders a little, it's more than balanced by the extraordinary, intimate hospital scenes between Lee Pace, a moving-picture stuntman with a broken back, and Catinca Untaru, the immigrant child he charms with his story. The six-year-old Untaru seems unaware she's in a movie. Full of wonderful touches (when he makes a character an Indian, he's thinking cowbows-and-Injuns, but we see the splendid Sikh in her imagination) and the most exhilarating use of Beethoven in any film score.
