Full of amazement

The miste and I watched The Fall last night, and it left me chock full of wonder and amazement. This movie is gorgeous and perfect. The movie is about a stuntman for the silent movies who is injured and in a hospital. He tells a fantastic adventurous tale to a little girl in the hospital.

The story jumps back and forth from the hospital to the tale he is telling. It is beautiful. The costumes, the creativity, the humor and the anguish. All of it.

Also, it has whirling dervishes. Whirling dervishes!

And the little girl is the cutest thing i've ever seen. I'd take her home and adopt her lil chubby cheeked self in a heartbeat.

This one is a solid ten in my book.

I hadn't heard of this before but it sounds like a lovely film, I've added it to my LoveFilm list (equivalent of Netflix)
