Amélie

2001 | 15 | 117 mins

Jeunet’s irrestible film revolves around Amélie (Audrey Tautou), a shy and eccentric waitress living and working in Paris’ beating heart. After she discovers a stranger’s childhood time capsule, Amélie resolves to return it, while committing anonymous acts of kindness to better the lives of the people around her – but can these kind deeds ever make up for her own sense of loneliness?

Starring: Audrey Tautou | Mathieu Kassovitz

Directed: Jean-Pierre Jeunet

 Screenplay: Guillame Laurant

 Produced: Jean-Marc Deschamps

THEY SAY: Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Amelie is one of those once-in-a-decade comedies which scatters its charm like pearls from a broken necklace, all the more adorable because they are not real.” (Barbara Ellen, The Times)

WE SAY: Amélie is an utterly charming, creative and original piece from a director whose earlier works incongruously included films including Alien: Resurrection. Audrey Tautou delivers a remarkable central performance, and the film leaves the viewer with a uplifting and altogether more optimistic view of human nature.
