amazingly charming movie

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.

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!!!

The Fabulous Journey of Amelie Poulain
A slice of delight, right here on earth. Amelie is a joy to behold, and has some of the most beautiful cinematography I've ever seen in a movie or otherwise.<br><br>Audrey Tatou is perfect, appearing as Amelie. A combination of Audrey Hepburn and Roger Rabbit, she involves herself in the world surrounding her as a means of really enjoying life itself. There are moments when she finds complete and total peace and happiness just walking down the street.<br><br>Some of it extremely funny, too..like when her pet goldfish tries time after time to commit suicide, or when she is on the telephone with the man at the XXX shop, or when a character is asked "Are you a congenital shmuck"?<br><br>Amelie is a comedy about being human, never forgetting about love, of course.

A film that will make you smile
This is an adorable movie, full of color, and life.<br>I watched this with my two teen daugthers and we could not stop smiling! Amelie makes you wish you could move to France and be her neighbor. If you like feel good movies with an underlying "life lesson"..pick this up. You will not regret it.
