Polaroids of the 'kidnapped' garden gnome from the movie "Amélie" (dir. Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001) --- SUMMARY: She stole her father's beloved gnome and sent it with her flight attendant friend all around the world, to try to inspire her father to live again after mourning her mother's death for so many years. The Polaroid photos were mailed back to her father in true 'Wish You Were Here' postcard style. Love it!!
