Amelie


Maybe it is my want to show you that I am not just all about shite horror and superhero movies… but this is one of my favourite films.  

So if you like French cinema or if you can put aside your hate for subtitles and watch a visually lush and and extraordinarily beautiful film then please make it this one. 

Amelie is a wonderful feel good movie.  It starts with Amelie as a young girl growing up with a rancid mother and a reclusive father.  She is desperately lonely and uses her imagination to create friends.  She has a wicked sense of humour and takes revenge on her neighbour through inventive means.

As she grows older she is an odd women who has strange likes and displays a few of her fathers shynesses.  Her imagination is still a big part of her life which penetrates her way of living.

She works in a coffee shop where characters are built around her to support the oddness of her life which adds to the humour of the film.  

One day she finds something hidden in the wall of her bathroom which she decides she wants to get back to it original owner and her life then takes a turn in helping people, seeking revenge for a friend, making new friends and ultimately finding a romance with someone who is her kind of odd.

I’m not really a chick flick kind of girl but this film resonates with me.  It has such a beautiful message and is bundled up with some visually stunning cinematography. 

The plot never flags and it has a great pace to it.

Audrey Tautou does an amazing job of bringing the fanciful character of Amelie to life.

Watch this film with an open mind and let the visuals and the plot transport you to understanding this uniquely devine character and the world around her.
