You have to like foreign films with subtitles or speak french for this one. It is a great movie. Amelie finds a hidden treasure and sets out to find its old owner. After her success with the long lost treasure, she decides that she wants to do good deeds. to help those around her and possibly herself. She also extracts a little revenge on an overly cruel shop keeper. In the process, she reconnects people, changes lives and finds love.
I first heard of Amelie from Meghan in her Stitch It knitting podcast. She highly recommends the movie and has seen it numerous times. Now I'm addicted.
A highly imaginative introvert sets out to bring more joy to the lives of those around her, choosing quirky circuitous stratagems to accomplish her secret goals. The movie is in French with English subtitles, but you forget that within minutes because the story is so involving.
If you like the kind of movie you think about for the next day or more, with a cute and charming lead character and a bit of romance, this one's for you. Now excuse me, I'm going to go watch it again right now!
There is nothing I disliked about the movie. It's perfection pictured on the screen. I can't describe why. Everything is a piece that contributes to make the movie one of the best in French if not World cinematography. Audrey Tautou is endearing as the lone and good-hearted Amélie, as well as Mathieu Kassowitz as the day dreamer guy. There is magic in the air, but everything is subtle. The special effects are like a cherry on the top of the cake. A modern fairy tale story that makes us feel light hearted and wonder what we have been doing to let the simplest things in life pass unnoticed. What more could you expect from a movie in addition to leaving you a good feeling in a very european way? Reality? That one we get in the every-day life. Amélie is superb!!!
I decided to buy this DVD because I have rented it to watch so many times that I could have paid for it twice. I like the lighthearted plot of the movie. We should all be more like Amelie. It may be considered a chick movie but the guys won't mind looking at Audrey Tatou. She is cute and funny. She desperately tries to make others happy. This may be where "random acts of kindness" was birthed. I love the garden gnome's adventures and the sly way she got her Dad out of the house. I expect to enjoy this movie over and aver...so much to see and take in. I catch something new every time I watch it.
Everything about this movie is charm. Capturing the true delight of Paris and all things French. This film doesn't leave one stone unturned, and dazzles with all its little intricacies. As fine a film as any, and you wont know what I mean till you watch it. I've watched it more than a dozen times, when I'm in the mood for a little trip to Paris.
Blessings, Max Rainet.
