SPOILERY DISCUSSION BELOW!
Fallen: Part One is a quiet film, until it’s very, very loud. Without explanation it throws the audience in, and they have to figure out the story for themselves. Who are these characters? What are they talking about? Are they talking about simple hunting, or something more? Fallen: Part One asks many questions, and not all of them are answered. Unfortunately, despite the “Part One” subtitle, no “Part Two” was ever released, though a teaser trailer is available here. Sometimes we don’t always get the answers we want.
