‘She’ll change your life’
Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) is a young woman who glides through the streets of Paris: observing. With wide eyes and a tiny grin, she sees the world in a magical light, discovering minor miracles every day. A shy girl whose favorite moments are spent alone skimming stones into the water, Amelie was raised by a pair of eccentrics who falsely diagnosed her with a heart problem at the age of six and so limited her exposure to the outside world. Now a free and independent woman, Amelie wears a bob that curls in every direction and dresses in red. With a job in a cafe and an aptitude for spying on her neighbors, Amelie entertains herself by enacting a series of homemade, kindhearted practical jokes.
Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (who co-directed ‘Delicatessen’ and ‘The City Of Lost Children’ with Marc Caro) presents ‘Amelie’, a gorgeous and inventive film. I’m happy to write my english essay about this romantic comedy, the biggest international successes for a French movie.
