DIRECTOR: Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon, Bruno Romy - FRANCE

Dom works the night shift in a small hotel near the industrial seaport of Le Havre. One night, a woman arrives with no luggage and no shoes. Her name is Fiona. She tells Dom she is a fairy and grants him three wishes. Off on a whirlwind romp around the town, two wishes come true, but then Fiona mysteriously disappears. Dom, now hopelessly in love, searches for her everywhere. “This delightfully off-kilter comedy seems to have been born without a cynical bone in its body. The Tati-inspired physical comedy and charming dance numbers abet an ingenious, whimsical tale. ... The retro attitude is further apparent in the recurrence of the jazz standard ‘What a Difference a Day Makes,’ as well as the use of rear projection in a road chase that may shock some in its all-out recklessness.”—The Hollywood Reporter (94 mins.)

Filmography: Iceberg (08), Rumba (09).

In French with English subtitles.
