From the current issue of Clash.
Break My Fall documents the dying embers of the relationship between couple and band mates Liza and Sally, and their social group which extends to their gay friends Vin and Jamie. Set to an authentic east London backdrop of clubs, cafes and Rough Trade, the film offers moments of insightful dialogue and a suitably hip soundtrack (Micachu, Scout Niblett, Peggy Sue). Filmed on a nano-budget, the four lead performances are strong although the supporting cast is particularly inconsistent. The emphasis on emotion over narrative offers plenty of interest, even if such a style isn’t suited to the slightly indulgent running time.
