Bursting with imagination and having seen her fair share of tragedy and fantasy, Amélie is not like any other girl. As she grows up, she becomes a waitress in a Montmartre bar. One day, she discovers that her goal in life is to fix up other people’s troubles by influencing their destinies.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s vibrant smash comedy is the ultimate rush of giddy energy. A fantasy version of Paris life infused with an intoxicating romantic spirit, Amelie was one of the big arthouse hits of the 00s, and no wonder—its charms were impossible to resist.
