The Fall (not the one by Camus)

If you get a chance, watch the movie The Fall (released in 2006).  In it, a little girl befriends a stuntman who are both recovering in a hospital in the 1920s.  He begins to tell her a story, which at first is fairly innocent but soon turns quite dark as it begins to mirror his depressive and suicidal state of mind.  I thought it was absolutely beautifully shot, with great costuming and beautiful scenery (it was shot in 26 locations in 18 countries).  The actual story is not fantastic but as a feast for the eyes, I find it spell-binding!
