Amelie left me speechless. Tears were streaming down my face due to the beauty I had just witnessed, and I felt so many emotions being unearthed from my heart. Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and starring the phenomenal Audrey Tatou, Amelie is the magical story of the life of the effervescent Amelie Poulain (Tatou). Amelie has lived a unique,unusual life, and one day stumbles across a forty year old box that belonged to the former tenet of her home. This discovery sends her on a journey she’ll never forget, full of wisdom, hope, and even love.
This is more than just a film; this is a work of art. Amelie is exquisite, and every frame is so beautiful that you could feature it in a gallery. I adored the bright colors and sunny exteriors, which reflected the purity and wonder of Amelie herself.
The dialogue was perfection. Humorous, heart-warming, and inspiring, this is one of the best stories I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
Audrey Tatou was magnificent as Amelie. She imbued the character with wonder, innocence, curiosity, and hope. I identified with her free spirit, interest in sexuality, and yearning for something greater in life. The supporting cast was phenomenal as well, lending even more warmth and humor to the film.
Amelie is a movie that you MUST experience. It is the first film to ever make me weep from its beauty, and the story, acting, and cinematography are all perfect. This isn’t just a movie; this is a masterpiece of cinema.
