Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain. My favorite Movie of all time. Amélie: [to her father, who is not paying attention] I had two heart attacks, an abortion, did crack... while I was pregnant. Other than that, I'm fine.
The movie celebrates the romantic Paris of the mind. It's not real (and is notably almost devoid of people of colour, which doesn't do justice to Paris' diversity) but it feeds an aesthetic hunger.
