In this (slapstick) silent film homage by the trio Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy, the hapless night porter Dom meets the slightly deranged fairy Fiona. One night the self-proclaimed fairy stands in the reception of the Hotel in Le Havre and grants Dom three wishes. Like any self-respecting Frenchman living outside of Paris, Dom wishes for a scooter and an endless supply of gasoline. Fiona makes the two wishes come true and then mysteriously disappears. Dom, who has since fallen in love with Fiona, sets out to find her. "Tati’s hand is evident in the exceptionally precise art direction and camerawork."
