One of Iceland's most popular films of 2018, Let Me Fall is an enthralling but harrowing look at addiction that stands out in a year filled with films about addicts and their families. Again touching a domestic nerve, as he did with Life In A Fishbowl, auteur Baldvin Z's drama tells the story of two teenage girls and their descent into the hellish depths of substance abuse. Strongly acted and sensitively directed, it is also remarkable for its unflinching gaze at the abuses the protagonists suffer to satisfy their habits, and for its compelling cinematic style. The narrative unfolds in a non-linear fashion, cutting between the girls as thrill-hungry teenagers and their lives some 12 years later, when they are both broken adults. The focal point is their relationship and how a betrayal and its repercussions change both their lives.
