kiota and The Fall

Yeah, that icon is on purpose, and no, this is not Kiota using Brad's journal. Well, not physically lol

I just loaned him my icon.

The Fall is a multilayered film about a nine-year-old girl who works in the orange groves of California [USA] in the 1920's and falls down and separates her left shoulder. In the hospital she meets an injured movie stuntman who is depressed and then becomes suicidal. [Sound familiar?] Together they create a fantasy adventure story where the line between reality and imagination totally blurs. It's a film from 2006 and just got released in America.

So, in the stories as you watch them, of course you end up not knowing which of them is real and which of them is not, and when.

Like all fantasy-adventures, this one is graphic and will probably trigger you so be careful plz

There is lots of falling of course. And not "forever", either.

The adventure has the two lead actors playing six different people on 26 sets located in 18 countries, across maybe 1000 years, and they ride horses that are only native to the deserts of India.

There are three writers -- American, Greek, Indian -- and the director is Indian. Seven producers, 114 crew. Catinca Untaru is the real name of the child star and she is Romanian and can't speak a word of English so she memorized all of her lines. If you've seen this in Israel or elsewhere in Europe, it's probably subtitled because the basic soundtrack is in English.

If you want to know something more about yourself, go see it. It will take you more than one time.

It did us.

Every time I see that icon my heart skips and beat, and for a minute I think Kiota has posted something on her journal. Then I remember.

Sounds like a good movie though. Maybe I'll go see it.

Heartskipping isn't the intention ... but the movie *is*.
I think you'd love it. There's even a monkey and Charles Darwin.

And a beautiful butterfly: real, and symbolic. More than one scene, too!

Not that you can do GPS on a butterfly.

Or can you?

A monkey and Charles Darwin, eh? Couldn't ask for more than that.

Heh, nah. The 'collar' would weigh the poor thing down too much.

What I've been told is never to discount the flying powers of a rainbow, nor of a butterfly. I mean, who would think that a lowly caterpillar .... <3
