Storyline

As a little girl, Dodo cannot walk. She associates herself with "The Little Mermaid" and wonders if she would give up something of her own in order to own a pair of feet. Fortunately, she gains a pair of feet after an operation, and hence is indulged in collecting and wearing beautiful shoes and heels even after she has grown up. She marries Smiley, a handsome but shy dentist. They live a happy life, except that Dodo still keeps buying shoes. Later, she reluctantly accepts Smiley's request to stop buying shoes, until one fateful day when she accidentally walks right into the shoe store ... Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Strange, quirky but not especially satisfying.
16 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

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.
