Amélie

"The sort of magical work that reminds us how truly fine movies at their best can be." - Mountain Xpress

“In the role of Amélie, a waitress in a Paris cafe, 23 year-old Audrey Tautou is utterly captivating. Ditto the movie. There’s magic in it.

“Early in Amélie, a suicide leaps from a building and lands on Amélie’s hapless mother, killing her flat. No wonder Amélie is cautious about life. It doesn’t help that her father has misdiagnosed her with a weak heart. Amélie observes life at a distance, that is until she finds a box of toys in her apartment and decides to find the owner – now a grown man. The owner is overjoyed and Amélie, watching in secret, begins her life as a mender of broken hearts. Nothing too goody-goody; she also sticks it to the wicked. More crucially, she falls in love with a man, Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz), who haunts photo booths to make art out of the discarded pictures. Nino is Amélie’s kind of guy, though she’s too shy to say hello.

“As director Jean-Pierre Jeunet and the brilliant cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel spin the camera around Paris, from Montmartre to Notre Dame, it’s hard not to fall under the spell of this moonstruck romance.” - Rolling Stone
