Amélie by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (France, 2001, 122 min.)

In French with English subtitles.

Audrey Tautou is Amélie, France’s most iconic ingénue. On the day of Lady Diana’s tragic death, she finds an old child’s toy box and hopes that the return of his hidden treasure will change its owner. If her plan works, this fabulous café waitress will only work to fill people’s life with sunshine! 


With this film, we dive in an enchanted Montmartre where eccentrics are lovable and Yann Tiersen soundtrack makes your every step float. Amélie’s director Jean-Pierre Jeunet is bewitching. He is a true auteur with a recognizable style and a creative mind. He keeps a riveting sense of how to build an oneiric environment.   


“A film guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a chanson in your coeur” – BBC
