And she proves right away that she's as good as her male colleagues, probably superior to most of them. The first female filmmaker starts her directing career with a pretty good effort here. The really interesting thing about "La fée aux choux"/"The Cabbage Fairy" is that it's really themed in a way that you can see the female touch in it: the beautiful female lead character, the scenes of mother nature giving birth and her gentle movements. And all this packed into clearly less than a minute. I watched this film with no soundtrack and I'm fairly certain it would be even more fun with a soothing slow tune. It's a good piece of filmmaking from one of the best female and most prolific directors in the history of film. On a sidenote, beyond enjoying the action, it also made me VERY hungry for cabbage heads. Man the ones in this one looked delicious. Recommended.
