She later on becomes a young woman and moves to the central part of Paris as a waitress. After finding a lost treasure belonging to the former occupant of her apartment, she decides to return it to him. After seeing his reaction and his new found perspective - she decides to devote her life to the people around her. Such as, her father who is obsessed with his garden-gnome, a failed writer, a hypochondriac, a man who stalks his ex girlfriends, the "ghost", a suppressed young soul, the love of her life and a man whose bones are as brittle as glass. But after consuming herself with these escapades - she finds out that she is disregarding her own life and damaging her quest for love. Amélie then ...

Reviews
This is rated so highly cause it deserves it
A slice of heaven right here on earth, "Amelie" is a joy to behold, and has some of the most gorgeous cinematography I've ever seen in a movie.

Audrey Tatou is perfection as the title character. A combination of Audrey Hepburn, Dolly Levi and Roger Rabbit, she involves herself in the world surrounding her as a means of really enjoying living. There are moments when she finds complete and total joy just walking down the street.

Some of it is hilarious, too..like when her pet goldfish habitually tries to commit suicide, or when she is on the telephone with the man at the porno shop, or when a character is asked "Are you a congenital shmuck"?

But for the most part, its a human comedy, about love, of course.

Just beautiful. 10/10.

Good, but not all that.
I know I really may sound like a party-pooper but I just didn't find this film all that great. However, the lighting is gorgeous and the guy should have definitely got an Oscar for that. Audrey Tautou as Amelie is perfect (her talent was already perceivable in "Venus Beaute (Institut)" despite her small part in the movie), and Jeunet's touch is there - maybe a bit too much actually, given how reminiscent it is of his cinematography on the City Of Lost Children (not to say identical).

There are also numerous cultural references for which I'm dying to see how they were translated into other languages, and the surprising presence of comedians who are well-known to the French audience to add to the fun (Yolande Moreau, Jamel Debbouze, Ticky Holgado, ...).

On the commented version of the DVD (at least the French pressing), Jean-Pierre Jeunet makes references to Frank Capra (the scene in the bar between Amelie and Nino), Wim Wenders (the man and the box in the phone booth) and Sergio Leone (the shot of Amelie in the train station) - the problem is that the same kind of scenes shot by these directors have an intensity that is light-years away from what I felt watching "Amelie Poulain". The commentary is actually concluded by the filmmaker stating that he couldn't care less for the anachronisms in the film.

Overall, you get an arty comedy directed to mass audiences with a very thin plot that everyone can understand without thinking too hard, and a good cast performing below their usual abilities. The whole wrapped up in a fairytailish package that, even if it is cute and without much pretense, still keeps me wondering if it is uplifting enough to come out of the movie theater with a big smile on your face, and the will to change the world like so many people seem to experience after watching this film.

like bottled sunshine
The first few minutes of the film leave you wondering where on earth it's going, but be patient, it's all worth it. Amelie is a real feel-good film, though not in the stereotypical Hollywood style. Its full of mystery, humour, and moments that make you think 'I wish I'd thought of that!' - for example, the way she sends Nico on a wild-goose-chase in the park at the Montmartre carousel. Audrey Tautou is wonderful as Amelie, a simple girl on the surface but with astonishing inventiveness, bewildering all around her.

As a director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet has a unique style. He seems to make great use of colour - some would say to unnecessary extremes, but for me it gives the film a sunshiny feel, whatever the weather in the film. He also likes to zoom about with his camera's, but again this all adds to the way the film completely draws you into its own world, just as Amelie draws Nico into her world without them actually really meeting. A few nice special effects top it off, and there are a few little details that you probably won't see the first couple of times you watch it.

I'm no film expert, but I loved this film, its my favourite of all time (so far, anyway), and I'm in danger of wearing out my DVD. There are some people who don't see what all the fuss is about: for them it's too sickly-sweet, or they see Amelie as a meddler or nosy-parker, but I think they've just somehow missed the essence of the film, poor things ;) Don't read too many detailed reviews before watching it, or you could spoil the surprises. Just get the video and watch it. And then watch it again. And again.

Postmodern approach to the Postmodern life
Anyone interested in film/literature theories would approve of this French director's view, that life is mostly composed of haphazard events and insignificant incidents. "Amelie" is brilliant as a film, since it dives into that aspect of life which is regularly overlooked but always pivotal: details. How people's destinies are decided by funny accidents; moreover, how the narrator of the film spies and comments on everything makes us constantly aware of the fictionality of the film. This film is a great fictional work which is ridiculously honest about its fictionality, yet feels so real... maybe exactly because of this modest yet genius approach. This is definitely a creative outlook and a refined one which suits the postmodern era we're living in.

Either one likes it or they don't
And I didn't.

The scenery is fine and I actually enjoyed the surrealism, but just couldn't get past the plot and main character.

Is this really what we want people doing who have no idea what they want in their own lives ... to go around and jump into other people's lives whether those people want it or not?

What we have is an early-20s, female, socially adolescent do-gooder who resorts to match-making, forced coincidence and, yes, even trespassing, illegal entry (and a potential arson charge, to boot) to fill her internal emptiness because she can't find a man. And when she does find someone, she doesn't know what to do.

To some, it's a great movie. Not to me.

dreamy and wonderful
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It is romantic an absolute non-icky way, it shows a humans kindness in whole new lighting and Nino and Amelie share this delicate, tender, gentle love without many words said. Jean-Pierre made this film colorful like only few other people did or could do. Paris looks absolute dreamy and it makes you wish you were born in Paris, in Montmartre, with french as your mother tongue. It makes you wanna do something beautiful with your life, to yourself and to others, of course. It makes you brave, although you think of yourself to be the worst coward ever to live on this planet. Acting is perfect and I still can't get over the fact it didn't win an Oscar for best foreign film. Music goes along with the movie just great, it just right, it sets the perfect mood for the viewer. I really recommend this movie to everyone because I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!!!

A fairy's touch
Jean-Pierre Jeunet is probably my favourite contemporary French filmmaker. I love his unique visual style that borders on surrealism with the stylised colour palette, the warm yellows and greens and the dreamlike tint, and I love his highly imaginative, complex schemes, those 'clockwork' or 'domino effect' sequences which are so characteristic of his films. I fell in love with his movies with The City of Lost Children and while Amélie didn't knock that one out of the top spot for me, it's a great, funny, heart-warming movie with a very positive message that makes the world a happier place.

Cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel paints a fairytale-like picture of Paris which makes a perfect background for the story of the waitress-fairy, Amélie, played by Audrey Tautou (she's just adorable here), who wants to bring happiness into other people's lives. This is typical Jeunet, but the way he starts the film, the way Amélie summarises her past and the life around her through juxtaposing various statistical data, is reminiscent of another director's work with a very distinct (and painterly) style: Peter Greenaway's. Being sort of fascinated with statistics myself, I found that a welcome addition. Another clear influence that should be mentioned is Wong Kar-Wai's Chungking Express (another favourite of mine) which has a lot in common with Amélie story-wise.

For me, Jeunet hit the mark four times in a row (with The City of Lost Children, Alien: Resurrection, Amélie and A Very Long Engagement), and while I don't consider Amélie his best, it is clearly his funniest, warmest and most easily digestible work. A real feel-good movie.

Merde du Merde, not Crême de la CRËME !
So I am not French, don't judge the summary above. But to make it short, this is the worst movie I have ever watched, no exaggeration, but sincere judgment. It's terribly awful, so much that I want my 2 hours back !

Now let's make it clear, I have never rated a movie (1 star, or under 6 stars) like this one ever before, actually I am easy-pleased by things, movies, and stuff, but this one went too far beyond Sh*t.

I watched this with my friend, neither me nor him had enjoyed it so far, it was so awkward and unfunny, the narrator was so annoying. Giving every character a special persona ? That didn't work out, it was so shitty, it made a lot of jokes about sex and stuff, and that didn't work out as well. The main character was lovely during the first 4 minutes but the plot ruined her for good.

I wished the movie had ended so soon, I felt like I am torturing my friend along with his time. If this was horribly rated I'd not blame myself... But...18th... seriously ?!

This howsoever has no point at all, you finish watching it then you be like :"What have I just watched? What's the point?" the only winner of the movie is Amélie who hung out with a porn-shop guy, seriously...

Charlie Chaplin would have murdered himself if he had heard the lame jokes in this movie. They don't even fit a kid's sense of humour, let alone this movie is rated for Mature people.

It doesn't deserve a 10, a 9, but a negative rating. Mince ! I know I am 15 years late, but a legendary movie never dies. This one lasted so long not enough, it shouldn't have.

Let us all pray to God that we don't witness another Merde, Amen.

The Best Fairy Tale In Years, The Best Film Of 2001
If you've gotten to my review at this point, you've either seen it or are considering seeing it. What more can I say about this cinematic-candy-store-shopping-spree that hasn't already been said? This is the definitive ROMANTIC-COMEDY. It is actually funny, as in hilarious, as in split-sides and slap-knees-humorous. It is indeed romantic, as in hold-them-close, heart-aflame, the world is a beautiful place-romance. This movie is magical, and if you need me to define magic, then you need to watch a movie like Amelie to have it restored in you. Welcome to the best fairy tale in years (sorry Shrek) and its for adults no less.

Warning, this film is not for everyone in that, lets face it, its a French flick, and some conservatives may find it a tad "risquee", but its more than that. Amelie is a beautiful gem that made me smile more in two hours than I have for 2 month stretches. My palms are sweaty in anticipation of this DVD, so I can invite my friends into the magical world that Jean-Pierre Jeunet has so masterfully created and handed us the keys to.

Once again, the best film of 2001 (sorry Memento.)

This Movie can CHANGE your life :-)
A year ago, if someone would have asked me "What is your favorite movie ?" , I would not have known what to answer exactly, maybe Fight Club, maybe Vertigo, Indiana Jones even would have come to my mind.

Since June, I have but one answer: 'Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain' !!! It is simply unique in his kind. And now it has come out in the US, I am a bit frightened, because everybody there describes it as a simple 'feel-good movie'. It is so much more than that ! Never before has a movie INFLUENCED my life in such a way. Audrey's performance is simply stunning... she plays with an innocence, a wit, a smartness and naïvity that even someone with 40 years experience could not have done better. (please, will someone give an oscar to that girl, she makes Kidman & Blanchett look pale :-) The score from Yann Tiersen is so beautiful that by now I'm addicted to it ( I read here somewhere something about 'accordeon jingle', please, get some education ;-). The story itself could easily have been abused, and I'm sure that if Hollywood had made this movie, it would have been ridiculous, but now it is a beauty, a pearl amidst broken hearts.

This movie is for everyone who understands passion or who has lost his/her childhood somewhere along the way. If you love art & music, sunshine & poetry than you are qualified for seeing this movie, be warned though...this movie can change your life (and maybe..it will ;-)!

Audrey is superb, Matthieu is better than himself, every actor gives a stunning performance, the scenery is beautiful, the whole movie is amusing, entertaining and charming, even CGI is perfectly done ! 10 out of 10 !!!

a 21-year-old Amélie fan who can enjoy the little things in life again
