Oh, to live in Beethoven’s 7th, 2nd Movement.

The most Beautiful Visual & Auditory Opening to a Movie You’ve ever Seen (or Heard):

Rent it.

Watch this video in HD, and full-screen it:




The trailer:

“Black and white will always be king. Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, II. Allegretto always makes things that much cooler.

This is what happens when you get David Fincher, Spike Jonze, and Tarsem Singh on one film. Are the credits a shout out to Fincher’s previous flick, “Panic Room” (and of course by extension, Hitchcock + Saul Bass)?”

    I remember seeing this movie on a whim in the theater, and I was completely mesmerized.

    Suggest you rent an oldie called Zardoz. The entire film uses Beethoven's 7th. Sean Connery is a bonus.

    Before I clicked on the link to this page I thought, "Nothing can beat the intro to The Fall. And then…it WAS the intro to the Fall. I am glad the beauty of this is being appreciated.

    I fell in love with the immense beauty of this film and the story it tells, the male lead is so handsome and the little girl is just amazing, the only area it "falls" short for me is the violence. 🙁
