Amélie (Original French title: Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain aka The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain) is a 2001 romantic comedy film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Written by Jeunet with Guillaume Laurant, the film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmartre. It tells the story of a shy waitress, played by Audrey Tautou, who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better, while struggling with her own isolation. The film was an International co-production between companies in France and Germany. The film met with critical acclaim and was a box-office success. Amélie won Best Film at the European Film Awards; it won four César Awards (including Best Film and Best Director), two BAFTA Awards (including Best Original Screenplay), and was nominated for five Academy Awards - Information Source Wikipedia
This French film has become one the most famous foreign films to cross over in recent years. At once offbeat, different, and with lashings of fantasy splendour, this French film from Jean-Pierre Jeunet kicks the living daylights out of any other film from Hollywood, through sheer imagination, inventiveness, and a strange, almost schoolboy like, love. What is most commendable about this film is that fact that it is done with such visual panache, in a style that has become the director’s trademark. And this film is the perfect partner for that visual style. Key objects glow a reddish hue, signifying their importance. Vinyl records are pasted on to cookers and cooked like pancakes. Heart beats are used to express the emotions of the characters. This is a film in which the director is firing from all cylinders, creating a world that is familiar yet fantastical, and will make anyone want to live there. The plot is something magical as well, seeing the exploits of a girl called Amelie (Audrey Tautou, in a perfect performance), who decides her one true vocation in life is to bring happiness to others. A prologue sees her childhood from beginning to end, introducing us to characters that we will never see again, as well as establishing the ones that we will. It is effective and original, and something we have never seen before. It breathes life into the typical prologue, and makes it compelling to watch. The movie then skips five years to the future, where we see a grown-up Amelie, who is working in a café with an eclectic mix of characters, oddballs, stalkers, failures, they’re all here and they are part of what makes the movie so magical - Information Source http://www.devon-cornwall-film.co.uk/2010/12/15/amelie-%E2%80%93-a-movie-with-brings-happiness/
