Man Harem Must See

It’s not often something grasps my attention so suddenly and so completely (or Cole’s for that matter), but a certain film has done just that this week, and it’s not because it stars a GMB Man Harem inductee, one Lee Pace:

Lee PacePace stars as an injured and depressed stuntman telling a little girl with a broken arm an epic story about five heroes on a mission to defeat an evil governor. His story, the little girl’s and that of the heroes intertwine in an amazing movie filmed over four years in eighteen different countries. The visuals, acting, costumes, and story are all magnificent in this movie I found for $3 at a going out of business sale.

The movie? The Fall:

Some visuals:

The Fall-1The Fall-2 The Fall-3

An amazing tale of storytelling and responsibility.

It's such a gorgeous film. Also, there's some intrigue about the child actor. She may or may not have understood what parts of the filming were real and which were fabricated. But still, so effing pretty.

I wondered about that when Lee Pace's character was explaining the Eucharist. I find that detail only enhancing the overall theme of the movie. What a wonderful exploration of why we tell stories and why we listen to them.

An excellent and intriguing movie!

Remember how we were riveted and I made you rewind to the butterfly and how the love scene was sumptuous and gorgeous and I couldn't breathe because everything felt like beautiful fabric grazing against my skin and WOW!!! So glad you found it and we watched it together.

Now to get a group of virgin viewers and watch their reactions...

The scenery has to be my favorite part of the film. They used locations all over the world. The adorable Lee Pace also helped make it incredible. I really need to rewatch it now!

If you've not already come across this site you may enjoy it.

@Mr. Curie. Very much so. I plan on looking into the director's other films.

@Cole: We still haven't finished our discussion. I may revisit this.

@TGD: Then you have good taste. ;)

@AGOHWO: You're welcome. I really don't do this often.

@Thinggrp: Thanks for that link. It's now bookmarked and I may do a little writing on that after the commentary.

@roxas0027: So true. I own both seasons. He's in a few new movies this year. My next Lee Pace indulgence: Wonderfalls-- a one-season show I can't wait to see.
