Trivia: The part of Amélie was originally meant for Emily Watson. She wanted the part but had to decline because she didn’t speak French and had already agreed to be in Gosford Park (2001).
Amélie: It’s better to help people than garden gnomes.
Amélie: [whispering in theater] I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never look at the road in old movies.
Amélie: I am nobody’s little weasel.
Narrator: Amélie still seeks solitude. She amuses herself with silly questions about the world below, such as “How many people are having an orgasm right now?”
[Amélie hands a begger some money]
Beggar: Sorry madam, I don’t work on Sundays
Amelie is a wonderful story about a girl who feels like she has never fit in. The movie goes through many little stories about her life, returning lost childhood memories, a traveling lawn gnome, and Amelie finding love. It is a beautiful, artistic masterpiece.
Amelie will give you a sensation you will never forget. It is a really dazzling film about a simple girl assisting people in living their lives. Amelie is such a wonderful film. It is the film that ignited my passion for movies. After watching the film I searched for movies with the same elements. Amelie showed me that cinemas have a lot to offer – that’s how good this movie is. It is presented in a humorous way. It never loses its charm from beginning to end. The visuals are really spectacular. It was like a true to life fairy tale. ITS A VISUAL FEAST! It has minor twists that create a major enjoyment. For me, this is one of the best movies of all time. It was really fun discovering the life of Amelie.
Watch this or Regret forever!
