Format: DVD
Once again the performing/writing and directing team of Abel, Gordon, and Romy deliver a sweet, gentle, charming comedy, that while having dialogue, is most akin to the silent
comedy classics.

As with their earlier films "L'iceberg" and "Rumba", the film is a hit and miss affair - but with many more hits than misses. A long string of silly sight gags, dances, absurd
and surreal moments with a slim thread of a plot tying them together; A sad-sack hotel manager falls for a woman who may be an actual fairy. Or just a crazy person.
Or maybe both.

Along their way they encounter a host of mostly very funny characters, like the nearly blind-owner of their favorite cafe, who is always right at the edge of spilling everything. (One of those
jokes that could fail badly, or get old quickly if it wasn't pulled off with such deft precision, and big heartedness.)

There are a few inspired, laugh out loud comedy bits, many others that are sweetly enjoyable, and a few that just fall flat.

But while this may be a bit inconsistent, how lovely to see a comedy that aspires to Chaplin and Keaton and not American Pie 5.

This is a beautiful little film... A rock-bottom production, cost "pennies" to make, but is funny, moving, creative, surprising in a pleasant way.

To avoid spoilers, I will tell you what the film is not: it is not your typical "feel good" film; and it's not an outright comedy, "roll on the floor laughing" either. Certainly not absurdly gross like "Bridesmaids". This picture can be funny without resorting to bodily fluids!

Very different from typical Hollywood fare, of course. The central pair are "ordinary looking people", and you warm up to them almost instantly, despite them not looking like Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz... or maybe that is exactly why I liked them.

Not, again, an action-packed flick chock-full of special effects and explosions... So if you are the "Clash of the Titans", "Wrath of the Titans", "PMS of the Titans" type, best to steer clear of this one! But if you are in for something unusual, give yourself a treat. This is one to keep!

Format: Blu-ray
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."

By Joanie on 19 Dec. 2012

This is such a lovely film. Pure fantasy, of course. Brilliantly acted and danced throughout. Farce is never subtle for the French who invented the genre. How clever to have a rather plain fairy, it must be said. When children expect someone beautiful - again! Laugh out loud most of the time. Would go down very well during the Christmas season with a glass of your favourite tipple and fun family viewing. Utterly refreshing. Enjoy.
