A fairy that can't quite cast a spell.

The best that can be said for The Fairy is that it certainly creates its own world. However, it's one I wanted to get out of almost as soon as it began.

When the lovey-doveyness turns cloying and the atrophied message-mongering creeps in, you wish the threesome knew when to keep their traps shut.

I personally admired and cringed at about the same time.

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.

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.

It's often a lot of fun with some dance numbers thrown in.

Although it's impossible to entirely dislike a work of such bouyant effervescence, the whimsy grows increasingly wearisome in The Fairy.
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.
February 21, 2012
While every scene is art-directed with zest and innovatively staged, The Fairy rarely inspires outright laughter. At least it respects its influences more than does The Artist.
March 24, 2012
A delightfully refreshing comedy that eventually runs out of steam.

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.

In their third feature, gifted physical comedians Abel, Gordon and Romy gracefully build on their distinctive brand of burlesque humour.
February 19, 2012
Re-employing the tools of Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis, this pleasant fable reclaims artful slapstick with a bliss that's hard to deny.

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

February 22, 2012
A delightful genre-blending adventure that's part romantic romp, part escapist fantasy, part slapstick comedy, and part song-and-dance musical.

May 31, 2012
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.

Although less technically polished than "The Artist" and splashed with bright color, "The Fairy" shares some of that film's qualities, for good (funny and sweet) and bad (sentimental and ingratiating).

Sometimes the visually arresting craft of Gordon and Abel is more to be admired than laughed at, but there is darkly comic joy to be had in some business with a baby, not to mention a dog and a drain, as well as some surprising moments of poignancy.

perfect timing, improvisational talents and [an] exuberant screenplay turn an absurd comedy into a thoroughly enjoyable absurdist comedy
