Two Line Reviews - #300

It's time for the 300th One! And for a hand-picked film, I had not to go anywhere as I had always kept this one for the milestone number. A film I had missed watching for a long time. Finally Amélie gets into my Blog!

Movie: Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (or) Amélie (French, 2001)

Plot: A girl whose childhood had been with imaginary friends thanks to the weird doting methods adopted by her parents suddenly gets a chance to liven up the life of an old man. Drawing immense satisfaction out of it, she keeps helping the nice people around her & in the process, falls in Love.

  • Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the writer/director deserves all the praise there is for creating the character Amélie in this out-of-the-ordinary film.
  • Audrey Tauotou, the girl who plays Amélie, weaves magic on-screen with her poisonous charm & smile. She creates an instant connect with the viewer.
  • The narration style (with references to facts, coincidences & wild imagination) is a winner.
  • The prominent supporting roles are all nice characterisations.
Amélie will bowl you over; Tasteful cinema at its best!
