Nice movie, in an adult way.
This is a nice movie. Not as in like ‘puppy nice.’ But as in pleasant, even warm. It’s human, it’s a bit smart, it’s low budget without announcing it’s cheap, and its shooting style is out of some “good cheap indie character films” instruction book, and I actually mean that as a compliment.
If you’re looking for a quietly funny, low-key character revelation with no explosions, car chases, capes, try this one out.
One misgiving: they were needlessly cloying about the stereotypical Fargo accent and speech thing. That was too easy, way too cliched, and a little bit insulting, and I don’t even come from there.
VIEWS ON FILM review of International Falls
“You ever seen Fargo?” Yes, and I’ve also seen A Simple Plan and 2019’s International Falls (my latest review). Granted, “Falls” is not cynical or thrill-seeking like Fargo. Yeah there’s those quirky Minnesota accents and the snow is falling but hey, there’s no gratuitous violence, no Steve Buscemi, and no real black comedy (even though the film is about a struggling comedian).
Anyway, International Falls is a double character study and a lonely spectacle about infidelity. It’s a depressing tale of two burnout people who can’t escape their own doom and gloom. The actors involved (Rachel Harris and Rob Huebel) do solid and revealing work. Their scenes are enclosed, divulged, and done in one-on-one fashion.
As far as last year’s releases go, “Falls” unveils and takes some real dark turns. Yeah it’s about amateur stand-up but that’s just the surface. At a running time of 93 minutes, “Falls” feels akin to 2001’s Tape. Just think intimate and daunting conversations that take place in your typical hotel room (without the concepts of HD video and real time).
Yup, I’m gonna recommend International Falls and yes, I’m the first critic to feature it as a user on IMDb.
Shot with exteriors in International Falls, Minnesota (naturally), released in a dozen film festivals, and billed as a farce (which it really isn’t), “Falls” chronicles lowly funnyman, vulgar language-r, and Xanax monger, Tim (Huebel). Tim during his comedic tour stop at an International Falls hotel, befriends a sad sack housewife who wants to pursue the same career that he already has (and doesn’t really want). The two confide in each other, parley, make love, and then one of them eventually commits suicide (spoiler).
Sad, downtrodden, and not without a muted happy ending (one of the two personas actually elicits a few laughs), International Falls “falls” into the recommend category. Rating: 3 stars.
