SYNOPSIS

Falling is an attempt to answer the question: why is the modern world becoming so radical and the society is making right turn so rapidly? This will not be a sociological analysis. It will be a family story with psychological nuances. Schilling is basically spinning a Chekhovian tale which gradually shows the tragedies and entanglements of each protagonist. There is a liberal professor with homosexual tendencies, unable to be honest with himself and people around; his daughter, watching her parents unsustainable behavior, becomes frustrated and considers a radical change; or a jobless loser and his daughter, who becomes pregnant and considers an abortion; and there is a young worker who dreams about going abroad and gives up on love to regain self-respect. The continuous setback of those individual stories, the hypocrisy, negligence, and intellectual idleness lead to a tragedy.

 

“In addition to explicit political allusions, I would like the audience to be provoked by human reactions as well. If there is a problem, the most important thing is the man that stands behind it. It is difficult to adjust art so that each figure represents some kind of truth and that we are slightly reluctant to every person at the same time. So that we like them, agree with them, but at the same time we are frightened by them or they throw us off balance. So that the audience gets lost in the process and doesn’t know which side they are on.” (Árpád Schilling)
