Dir: Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon & Bruno Romy|France / Belgium|2011|93 mins
Third feature from anarchic comedy trio Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy, The Fairy is a colourful burlesque comedy that succeeds in being both charming and hilarious.
Social misfit Dom works the night shift in a small hotel near the industrial sea port of Le Havre. One night, a woman called Fiona arrives with no luggage and no shoes and tells Dom she is a fairy, granting him three wishes. It is love at first sight. After making two of his wishes come true, Fiona mysteriously disappears. After searching for her high and low, heartbroken Dom eventually finds her...
The opening night film of Director's Fortnight in Cannes last year, The Fairy casts a distinctive spell that continues to enchant audiences.
“Dishing out another slew of colorfully anarchistic sight gags, Belgium-based trio Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy are back with their latest Keystone-style romp, The Fairy (La Fee). Firmly grounded in the work of Chaplin, Keaton and especially Jacques Tati.” The Hollywood Reporter
“Excellent range of films, really helps in choosing what we'll screen.”
