5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting May 29, 2012
By Ingrid
Format:DVD
This is a small pearl of a film - crossing through ballet, wordless acting, strange figures, peculiar storyline, wonderful acting and very memorable. It is full of humour and aesthetics - a different film experience - in a good way. It was like a blind date for me when I went to the movies to see this film - and I was pleasantly surprised. Just sit back and let yourself enjoy - highly recommended.

About the film:
"Dom is a night watchman at a small hotel in Le Havre, France. One night the mysterious Fiona appears, shoeless and without any luggage. She tells him she is a fairy and that he can have three wishes come true. The next day two of them are fulfilled and Fiona has disappeared. But Dom really wants to find her as she has opened a new world to him, a world crowded by fantasy and love."

5.0 out of 5 stars Craziest movie ever April 29, 2012
By DaveP
Format:DVD
My wife and I saw this move at the theatre and thought it was the craziest movie ever. It is almost a silent film - a lot of physical comedy - a lot a small clever details - and romance. There are a few times when you are sure what is going to happen next but it doesn't happen. Something else heppens instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious urban fantasy April 24, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Fiona Gordon, just to look at, isn't who you might have cast as the fairy. You know, cute, young, ethereal, squeaky clean, pert'n'perky - she's not that. That's OK. Dominique Abel, as the mortal to whom her three wishes are given, isn't much of a Prince Charming character, either. Fiona (in the role of Fiona) and Dom (in the role of Dom) have a wonderful, quirky chemistry, though. Her odd ways of making wishes come true, her penchant for shopping without the bother of payment, and his chronic lack of ambition play off each other nicely, with occasional caroms off the enjoyable supporting characters.

A few surreal moments pop in, like the two dance numbers (one underwater, the other with her rotundly pregnant) give plenty to laugh at, as do the moments and characters in the psych ward. This doesn't have the wacked-out frenzy or continuous patter of some other comedies I've enjoyed. It has a quiet charm all its own, though.

-- wiredweird, reviewing the release to theatres.

PS: If subtitles give you hives, you probably want to skip this one - French (it figures) with English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully surreal August 26, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Every so often you come across a movie that you've never heard of that turns out to be an absolute gem- this is one such movie. Dom is a sad sack who works as the night manager in a small hotel. We first meet him as he's bicycling to work, in the rain, on a bike that keeps throwing its chain. His life is one of small pleasure- a few undisturbed minutes during which he can enjoy his sandwich and an old movie. But such moments are hard to come by, as he finds himself repeatedly interrupted by curious travelers and an odd woman who appears at the door without any luggage, announces that she is a fairy, and grants him three wishes. Fiona- that's the fairy's name- doesn't look like anyone's conception of a fairy- but Dom is startled to discover his first two wishes come true, and that's when things start to get even stranger.

But to say things get strange is an understatement. The plot is really just a tenuous thread that ties together moments of comedy, dance, and music. The team of Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon, who both wrote and star in The Fairy, are dancers, mimes, and performers who have collaborated for many years, both personally and artistically, and this film showcases both their wit and originality and their great physical skill- though in a way unlike anything you may have seen before. Like all great comedies, The Fairy is completely original, with characters and a plot that is like nothing you've ever seen in a movie, and that means that every scene, every turn of events is completely unexpected. I loved it, and if you can imagine liking a comedy that can be described as sweet, surreal, and completely original, you might just like it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my top 10 movies of all time March 23, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Ok, my top 10 is probably a list of 50 movies, but the Fairy is an excellent movie keeping you laughing at every turn. And if you can read french you'll find that signs and store names add to the grinning! Once watched this film will be on everyone's cult list!

1.0 out of 5 stars Do You Believe in Fairies? November 29, 2013
By Tina
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The Fairy in this movie just might be a real Fairy. At first, the Fairy's quirkiness was enough to keep me watching but somewhere not quite in the middle of the movie, I just turned it off. I hate to say that I hate this movie, by that 1 star but ... I didn't like it. I don't even remember much about this movie -- it was like a Mr. Bean meets a 1960's Jerry Lewis movie.
