Gordon & Abel & Romy revive Intelligent Physical Comedy
10 November 2014 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I save the word 'brilliant' for a very few films; The Fairy is one. It is also mad, charming, funny, odd and the hippest comedy film in a generation. The Fairy is a spirited, zany concoction about lovable misfits--one with askew magical power, and the team of Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel & Bruno Romy is the most original and bright comedy team since Monty Python! Fiona Gordon is an unglamorous fairy; Dominique Abel the worn-down recipient of her beneficence; Bruno Romy is the third member of this writing-directing-acting triumvirate, although Romy tends more to the directing end than as an actor.How did IMDb compute a rating of 6.2 for a film that every one of the IMDb reviewers loved? -- Frank Cullen founder: American Vaudeville Museum; author of "Vaudeville, Old & New: an Encyclopedia of Variety Performers in America" (Routledge Press).
