La fée (The Fairy) Reviews
Abel a night-shift worker at cheap-hotel nearby seaport of La Havre, one night allows Fiona a fairy (to stay at his hotel, in return she allows him to put his three wishes to her: firstly he asks for motorbike and secondly for lifetime free-of-cost petrol. While, he could not think of the third wish. The next morning due to some hassle he could not note down a number that she asks him on phone to contact her. Thus, starts the search for her all over Le Havre.
It should be praised for funny performance from lead actors, and comedic-style which is rarely found in European movies.
NOTE: This concludes my 1400th review!
The two instantly connect, and after what was insinuated as a raunchy night on the floor of the hotel lobby, Fiona grants Dom his two wishes: a scooter and free gas for life.
The couple then goes on many wild escapades that lands Fiona in a mental hospital and in the end, Dom in prison. Throughout all of this though, Dom and Fiona manage to keep their wildly awkward love firey hot. They participate in many spontaneous interpretative dance scenes and in the end, they run off into the distance being pursued by the cops.
The biggest idea that that arose from this film was that regardless of the trials that love can undergo, it will prevail if it really is true. Regardless of Fiona being taken to an asylum, Dom ended up in prison, and Fiona magically vanishing for a short time, they still managed to have a happy (but quirky) life with a child.
Overall, if you are in to the traditional quirky French films, this one is a must see. Even though the humor is dry and occasionally is eye-rollable, this movie is well worth the watch.
