Amélie is a young woman who had a decidedly unusual childhood; misdiagnosed with an unusual heart condition, Amélie didn't attend school with other children, but spent most of her time in her room, where she developed a keen imagination and an active fantasy life. Despite all this, Amélie has grown into a healthy and beautiful young woman who works in a Paris cafe and has a whimsical, romantic nature. She decides to step into the lives of others around her to help them out.

A zany romantic-comedy that combines sharply-drawn characters with (brief) animations and urban folklore themes. Very entertaining!

This film has such a creative story-telling ability, you will be unsure as to whether you are reading a book or watching a movie! (I'm sure the subtitles have something to do with that)
You will love Amelie, her sweet nature and her adventurous spirit.
Combined with brilliant acting and beautiful sets, Yann Tiersen presents us with yet another incredible soundtrack. I cannot suggest this film more.

Cinematography, screen shots, story itself is excellent. Audrey Tautou is quite fantastic in this role...my most favorite movie

If you liked Amelie, you'll love the movie Kamikaze Girls (2004; Japanese w/ English subtitles).

One of the greatest films I've had the privilege to watch. Seen it over and over and every time I fall in love more and more. Highly recommend it.

I have to say the avant-garde directing by director Jean-Pierre Jeunet didn't do much for me. I find the voice-over often redundant and not adding much to the story. Still, it is an enjoyable watch overall.

If you've never seen a foreign film, this is the one to watch first. Love that mischievous grin.
