Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, Bruno Romy | France/Belgium | 2011 | 94mins | Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, Bruno Romy
The third feature from anarchic trio Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy (L’iceberg, Rumba) is an enchanting comedy inspired by the films of Jacques Tati and Buster Keaton.
Social misfit Dom works in a hotel near the industrial French sea port of Le Havre. One night, a woman called Fiona arrives, sans luggage or shoes, telling Dom solemnly that she’s a fairy and will grant him three wishes...
Incorporating joyous, gloriously anarchic physical comedy, The Fairy casts a distinctive spell.
