This is a strange fairy tale-like story set in modern Taiwan about an odd woman named Do Do and her sweet husband, Smiley Dentist. It begins in Do Do's childhood where she is unable to walk and restricted to a wheelchair. However, after receiving surgery, she's now able to walk and becomes obsessed with shoe--and eventually it dominates her life. What happens next is strange....very strange.
I wanted to like "The Shoe Fairy" and its quirkiness was infectious. However, as I watched the film I kept waiting for the film to come together and make the viewing experience worth my time. That never occurred. I did like the interesting set designs and cinematography and the germ of a story idea was there....but alas, it was unsatisfying which is a shame, as there IS a lot of interesting stuff buried within the film.
