Overview

Review

In Free Fall, Gyorgy Palfi´s imagination expands beyond boundaries, like a young man running through the wall in the film.

An old lady jumps off an apartment building in Budapest. Instead of a horrible death, she picks up the pieces of her broken glasses and walks up the stairs. As she climbs each floor, kaleidoscopic stories taking place in the building´s seven rooms are shown on the screen.

The lady played by Molnar Piroska, who worked with Palfi´s in Taxidermia, stands at the center of the tapestry-like story. These events seem to have occurred somewhere or to occur in the future.

The seven rooms reenacting different genres, such as SF, horror, romance, and sitcom, equal to the storage of imagination. A woman walking around naked at a decent party, a couple making love while wrapped in plastic, or a woman undergoing an operation to send her baby back to her womb; none of these is close to normality. Where is the destination of these bizarre stories, then? Questioning the concept of normality, Free Fall is a grotesque film full of elements which Palfi´s fans would look forward to.

DIRECTOR
Gyorgy PALFI
 
The Hungarian director Gyorgy Palfi was internationally noted for his debut film Hukkle (2002). Created in a silent film style, Hukkle refrains from using any dialogue and conveys imagery through the rhythm of the screen. Taxidermia (2006), a film about a bizarre family, was invited to the Un Certain Regard at the Cannes. His Final Cut: Ladies And Gentlemen (2012) stimulated the cinephilic sensibility in an extracted film or essay film form. Palfi engaged with Jeonju IFF as he directed Free Fall (2014) for the Jeonju Cinema Project. This film oscillates between SF, horror, melodrama and sitcom, raising questions about the concept of normality as it portrays the mysterious situations a woman experiences as she jumps from the roof of a building. His recent film His Master's Voice (2018) is an SF film tracing the secret of the protagonist’s missing father.
