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
Director Gyorgy Palfi made an impressive debut with Hukkle(2002), and was recognized as a promising director as Taxidermia(2006) and Final Cut: Ladies And Gentlemen(2012) were invited to Cannes. He is one of the most important Hungarian directors, and this year's Jeonju Digital Project 2014 presents his new feature Free Fall. The film depicts six different lives unfolded by an old lady falling from a seven story building. It is a unique fantasy film filled with the filmmaker's signature surrealistic imagery, symbols and a biting sense of humor.
