Chris Olson, UK Film Review

"The romanticism of war is a familiar topic for audiences who have been gifted many stories of love existing within conflicts. Battlefields in distant lands, aside from creating harrowing violence and sorrow, also create that all-consuming romantic device - long distance relationships. In filmmaker Spencer Anderson's short film, Fallen, this long distance gets stretched through time as well as miles, allowing for an absorbing and achingly tender story of love. 

 

Based on the recollections of Gilbert Bradley, a soldier, the title Fallen has a double meaning. On the one hand referring to the tragic demise of all those who fell in WWII and on the other hand falling in love."
