The Fall follows a young girl through her convalescence in a hospital, where she is told a series of almost-true stories by a bitter silent-film stuntman. As her innocent young mind tries to conjure up images to go with his jaded old-man rants, a surreal, poetic glimpse is revealed of the way grownup callousness intersects with youthful purity. Or something like that. Anyway, the visuals are lovely and trippy. At least for the moment, The Fall is showing only at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE 6th Street, Fort Lauderdale), and only through tomorrow. The show starts at 8 p.m.; tickets cost $8. Visit www.fliff.com.
