Movie Review by Mike Thomas
June 21st, 2014

A Fish May Love A Bird, But Where Would They Live?

Favorite Movie Quote: "Silent Movie"

Chinon, France, 1194. In the heat of fierce battle between two warring armies, a young knight (Tyler Oakey) escapes the battle, but not before receiving a near-fatal blow. As he drifts into unconsciousness, he sees a beautiful woman descend upon him. It is a wood nymph, a fairy (Sarah von Ouhl), who tends to his wounds, and protects him from enemies, both mortal and magical. But as she begins to fall in love with the handsome young knight, she discovers a terrible reality.

He is promised to another (Veronica Lane).

Roll Credits.

The FAY, taking from medieval myths of Europe, is a tale of tragic love. Shot impossibly beautifully at Ridley Creek State Park in Media, Pennsylvania, and completely devoid of dialogue, the expressive Ouhl tells the entire story with her eyes and her very vulnerable face, much more than any extensive exposition could possibly convey. Oakley does his part, grateful for the help she's given him, but pulls back just at the right time. It is a sad tale, where the Fay tries to turn his gratitude into love, but it is doomed from the start. The resolutions is as sad as one would have expected from such a love.

On my personal rating scale of with "5" being drop everything and see the video now; if you're female, bear the producers' children and "0" being burn down the theater, murder the staff, and violate their dog, this movie earns a "4," using my Patented Bell Curve for Independent films. The FAY tells a story, without telling the story outright. It's told in expressions, and the music of Annie Brunson, who practically creates a duet between her music and Ouhl. It is a perfect date film, for guys who want to score points with their partner, and just long enough to enjoy without being tedious.

The FAY stars Sarah von Ouhl, Tyler Oakey, Veronica Lane. Written and directed by Mark Bonocore, the film has garnered many awards on the festival circuit and will do so for a good time longer.
