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."

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.

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.

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.

I really had no idea what to expect when I started to watch but I was immediately entranced by this surprisingly sweet and funny little beauty. A wonderful mix of silly, romantic and heartwarming. Dom and Fiona are delightful as the main characters but the film is filled with equally fun and delightful supporting characters. Even with so little dialogue, all of the actors managed to impart tons of personality and character. Prepare to spend an hour and a half with a silly smile on your face! I never write movie reviews because I tend to end up watching typical Hollywood formula movies (which definitely can be fun and entertaining) but this is so far outside of the box that I had to leave a few words!

Highly recommend!

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!

I normally don't buy movies with English subtitles, but this one doesn't have that much subtitles and you have more time to read them so you don't have to rewind & replay frequently. Its a very unusual movie. The actions are hilarious.

The plot is nearly as old as humankind: a man meets a magical being and is granted three wishes. In this case, the man is an addlepated night clerk (Dominique Abel) and the magical being is a lanky, eccentric redhead (Fiona Gordon) who claims to be a fairy. Since she can bring stalled elevators to life and make people fly, it's reasonable to assume that she is what she claims to be. After granting the clerk two wishes and giving him the wildest night of his life under the sea, she disappears and he must find her.

This comedy has been likened to the movies of Keaton and Tati; Dominique Abel's performance (and appearance) recall Roberto Benigni. But this comedy exists in a world of its own, recalling not so much the realm of Keaton as it does the much fantastic world of Melies. If it lacks the French magician's spectacular effects, it retains just enough ambience of the incredible to enable us to embrace the fantasy rather than be concerned about endangerment.

Abel and Gordon have wonderful comedic chemistry. Neither has "conventional beauty," but possess eccentric charm and athletic physiques that lend themselves to physical comedy and pantomime. The supporting cast is equally wonderful, a collection of eccentrics worthy of a Fellini movie.

Those who are put-off by subtitles have little to fear in this movie; it's practically a silent film, peppered with vintage music and just enough dialogue to move the plot along. There's a bit a rear-view nudity and a surreal dance scene laced with sexuality, but it's all in keeping with the lunacy of the love story.

The extras on this dvd aren't much, but the feature compensates for that.
