Amélie

Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain

2001

Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Director

Shy but imaginative young woman subtly and secretly reaches out, after a chance discovery of someone's forgotten memories, to improve the lives of those around her. The question is whether she has the courage to step out of her shell to improve her own life.

It's far too easy to label a film as 'magical,' as critics long ago discovered, but if any films deserves that label, it is this one. Definitely a film that can reaffirm one's interest in life, and also one of the most beautifully shot films of recent memory.

-Dave Wright

The sort of film you actually want to keep going after the credits have run. Jeunet's poem to awkward love is funny and has oodles of charm and style to spare. The opening narration is soooo good.
