Abel and Gordon's relationship on screen is a delight to watch... The pair, along with a wonderful performance by Romy as a goggle-eyed bartender, demonstrate an exacting knowledge of their craft.

If you like Tati-esque japes, Francophone clowns Abel, Gordon and Romy should be just up your alley.

All over the place, but somehow it retains a sweet tonal cohesiveness.

For pure entertainment and high-spirited comedy value, The Fairy is as good as any gone before ... once you have seen one of their films, you'll never forget it that's for sure.

The story cuts corners, so it's not the masterpiece these filmmakers may yet create - but when they're on, this is jolly and so cute you'll sigh.

Not all of the jokes land perfectly (a late telephone gag treads too much water), but The Fairy remains infectiously funny throughout.

This has to be one of the most imaginative, articulately planned, strange, wacky, whimsical, unique and flat out hysterical films I have seen in at least a few years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

As slight and tasty as a Popsicle on a hot day, the movie gets its fun from its freedom, from how regularly its blithe characters find themselves in impossible situations and how effortlessly they wriggle out of them.

Do yourself and your kids a favor. On the way to multiplex to see "The Avengers," tell them "The Fairy" is about an all-powerful superheroine. Someday, they'll find the words to thank you.

Its appeal is ... in watching people who have devised their own original style of comic performance and have taken it to a rare level of refinement.

perfect timing, improvisational talents and [an] exuberant screenplay turn an absurd comedy into a thoroughly enjoyable absurdist comedy
May 3, 2012
The clownish night clerk and his fairy princess swoop and pratfall through a series of physical vignettes that leave us in stitches.
April 26, 2012
It's a slight film, and it's over just as you're thinking it should be, but it's both sweet and refreshingly tart...

The vibe's too rarefied to last the length of a feature film - and it doesn't - but when "The Fairy" is on, it creates entirely new comic synapses in your head.

Though occasionally the absurd humor falls flat, the attempt to forge something utterly unlike anything else happening in cinema today gives this film a mesmerizing and memorable charm.

Abel and Gordon's combination of dance and slapstick could easily be lifted from their films and performed on stage without benefit of story, but the trio (Romy appears as a cafe owner) find delightful ways to string the routines together.

A delightfully refreshing comedy that eventually runs out of steam.

Physical comedy is so rare in movies now that a team like Bruno Romy, Fiona Gordon, and Dominique Abel is something to be treasured.
