Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain

Jean-Pierre Jeunet France, 2001

David Huxley's rating of the film Amélie

This bright and colorful love letter to Montmartre, Paris, stars the adorable Audrey Tatou in a quirky performance that will steal your heart. It's both humorous and poignant at the same time. Throw in a pinch of mystery, a dash of fantasy, and a dollop of romance, and you have the recipe for the best film Jean-Pierre Jeunet ever made (and he's made some very good ones.)
