Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain

Jean-Pierre Jeunet France, 2001

smndvdcl's rating of the film Amélie

A gush to cause conjecture, but to quote Icona Pop, "I don't care, I love it". Renoir, Godard, Truffaut, Vigo, Bunuel, Kieslowski, Clouzot, Tati, Resnais, Kassovitz, Audiard, - all of whom get criminally ignored, but Amelie's success doesn't negate its beauty. Jeunet created a love letter to marginal lives and Paris that stands true, dealing with the delicate meaning of the little things with aplomb. I stand by it.
