Catinca Untaru is an exceptional discovery …Alexandria as the guardian angel in training…


Although The Fall premiered at the Toronto Film Festival two years ago, it failed to get a distributor. It has finally got a release in the UK, and one can only hope that the film will take off this year. Tarsem’s second feature has been several years in the making, filmed in over 20 countries and funded by the director himself. As visually stunning as anything by Sofia Coppola, the film reworks the It’s a Wonderful Life story with Roy as the broken man who needs to be saved and Alexandria as the guardian angel in training. Catinca Untaru is an exceptional discovery – intelligent, endearing and entirely believable, and Alexandria’s devotion to Roy is one of the sweetest and cruellest friendships you will see on screen.
