Product description

Product Description

Three days in the lives of four friends on the pulsating streets of East London. Girlfriends Liza and Sally have a band to pull together and a birthday to celebrate, yet from this moment on their lives will change forever.

Liza (Kat Redstone) hovers precariously between change and self-destruction, between leaving her failing relationship with girlfriend Sally and finding success with their band, Blanket. Sally (Sophie Anderson) works nights in a dead end job, clings to her fantasies of a better life and ignores the chaos around her. Vin (Kai Brandon Ly) works as a rent boy, is secretly in love with Sally and in denial about everything else. Jamie (Collin Clay Chace) works nights in a gay cabaret bar, but longs to break free of his friends and their drug-infested dramas and settle down with a nice man. In the three days leading up to Liza s 25th birthday things finally come to a head between Liza and Sally. After a failed birthday dinner, the four friends are plunged into emotional meltdown at an illegal rave and by the end of the night there s no going back to how things were.

I saw this film at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival last April. It was brilliant! I was so moved by the story of these two characters who were trying their best to save their relationship against all odds. I loved the way the director placed the film in East London, she really captured the essence of this part our city. The mix of professional and non-professional actors really worked and it was so funny in parts too - just when you don't expect it! So 10 cheers for this new British indie feature - long may she reign!

This film had me on an emotional roller coaster from the outset, my eyebrows were aching from being raised so much. Yes it's about the death throws of a relationship, yes everyone behaves badly and the story works on us by being familiar yet utterly surprising at the same time. It could be billed as a psychological thriller. It's a far cry from schmaltzy coming out stories and a welcome step into gritty lesbian lives, no heroines, no apologies. Great film, watch it!

Break My Fall is an enthralling portrait of the last days of a relationship. Truthful, touching, and at times very funny, I saw it on theatrical release in London's West End. Intimate storytelling marries with great music, photography, and some strong performances to herald an accomplished debut for Kanchi Wichmann. Highly recommended.

This film had me captivated from the opening scene. It is not the trendy East London party scene film that I was expecting (which is a good thing), but a raw honest and sometimes funny look into what happens when things fall apart. I have seen it twice now and the second time around I noticed moments that i hadn't seen the first time, even though the film is dealing with a difficult subject that can be quite dark at times the director has managed some well place 'lifts' just when its needed.
This film should not be left in the 'gay' section of cinema, it deserves a much wider audience. On top of this, it's British made, female directed and a has a soundtrack that made me want to buy it, which hasn't happened to me for ages. (they haven't released one, why I don't know).
I recommend this film and will look out for more from this director.

I saw this at the BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival and am looking forward to seeing it again on DVD and in the cinema. It's a moving portrayal of friendship and of a relationship in breakdown, and funny (in a squirmy 'I've been there' way) too. It shows the East London I know and love/hate and reminded me of my own (straight) years in my 20s (and 30s) - crappy jobs you don't care about, awkward social occasions where everyone's supposed to be having fun, weird one-night stands with people you don't have a lot in common with. In spite of or because of the gunge and abuse the main characters are still likeable and I rooted for them and wanted them and their mates to be happy.

I wouldn't bother with this at all. There was no storyline and we didn't even finish watching it because we got tired of waiting for a storyline to magically appear. A complete waste of money.

break my fall is an intelligent london indie film that starts where most love stories in films end: when you have to deal with every day reality, when less appealing habits emerge from the cloudy, love-stung sphere, when jealousy creeps in and the lightness disappears. but this is not all heavy stuff - we're sucked into the hedonistic fun loving life style of this east london couple as if we're a bunch of friends, allowed to come up close to follow a few days of their life. liza and sally are a great couple to the outside, they listen to good music, play in bands and have a lazy slant that enables them to party more and work less. but at home they become increasingly more alone together. drifting apart, they fight to deny things have changed. it's a gradual and irreversible development, and none of their friends seem to be able to grasp what is going on. perhaps my favourite scene is at a warehouse party they are joining together and immediately lose sight of each other. break my fall is full of funny one liners, and some of linklater's SLACKERS comes to mind as no one struggles to get a grip. i've not often seen such a truthful and honest portrayal of a break up, of east london right now - shot with a handheld camera with an eye for beauty where you least expect it.
