Falling is a marvel and Viggo Mortensen truly is a master. Not only is he proficient as an actor and now director, but as an artist. As an admirer of art and film, my anticipation to see it was not misplaced. This film achieved a depth of emotion that in my (novice) opinion, is not easily discovered among movies today. Highly relatable, highly poignant, highly recommend. Every facet of this production was flawless, from the cast to the soundtrack.
The acting is superb. The sets are beautifully designed. The camera work is skillful, dramatic, and poignant. I am, however, growing tired of these men with histories of arrogance and cruelty, who seem to be redeemed by a soft focus ending with lovely piano notes at the closure.
Beautiful, emotionally tough at times, but never draining.
