"IN MOSCOW "THE FALL" WAS PROHIBITED, PEOPLE HAD TO GO TO BALASHIKHA AND MYTISCHI TO WATCH IT, AND I WAS PRETTY SURE THAT NOONE HAS EVER SEEN IT. AND THEN, TWENTY YEARS LATER, WOMEN UNDER FORTY STARTED TO COME TO ME TO SAY: YOU KNOW, THIS FILM PLAYED AN ENORMOUS ROLE IN MY FEMININE DESTINY. THE BEST RESPONSE BELONGED TO ONE ST. PETERSBURG LADY: SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE WAS IN THE NINTH GRADE AT THAT TIME, AND IF A BOY OFFERED HER THE TICKETS FOR "THE FALL" – THEN HE HAD SOME SERIOUS INTENTIONS"
Andrey Smirnov

On the one hand, a love story of Ilya and Aleksandra, escaping to the village for a week to be alone, brought up the subjects tabooed for the Soviet society (from infidelity to abortions) and blew the viewer's mind with the bedroom scenes displayed at the background of the music by Schnittke. On the other hand – which evoked even greater criticism – had no ideology at all: "I contemplated a pure love story in the Russian State University of Cinematography already, - said Smirnov, - without any smelting, harvesting or Communist Party meetings, only a man and a woman".
Filming of "The Fall" took three months. Amending of the film in accordance with the remarks of the heads of the State Cinema Committee – another seven. Nevertheless, the film did not lose its charm, tenderness and cloudy melancholy which was appreciated by Ingmar Bergman who called it "a concert of chamber music".
