Charlie Chaplin is alive and living in France

post #1 of 6

I don't get it....
How is it the French have managed to unlock the vault to Hollywood's Golden Era?

Last year we had the beautifully crafted The Artist sweeping the AA and almost everything else.
Now, we have another amazingly well done tribute to the early days of movies:



While watching The Fairy, I lost track of how many times I went into giggling fits and in the next moment picking my jaw up off the floor in amazement.

This is cinematic perfection, every element of this film is dead on the mark.
The sight gags and slapstick comedy, the love story, the writing, the direction, the acting, the camera work.....EVERYTHING is just right.
Movies don't get better that this.

Alright I'm going to give this a blind buy. I like slapstick and screwball comedies so we shall see!

There's the spirit!

This is one of the finest, most perfect movie I have seen in quite awhile.
Not one moment does not "work"....it pulls you in and the real world falls away.

Very heart-warming as well...the wife loved it too.

Been watching a lot of "old" films lately like His Girl Friday w/ Cary Grant (I loved this film when I was first saw it back in college) so I think this film would be a nice modern addition
