A delicate style

I got Amilie expecting an arty, whimsical French movie. That's exactly what I got. I also didn't like it that much.
In fairness, it's fine. Kinda silly, nice ideas, lots of little things going on here and there. One of those "look at all the delights and crazyness in life!" sorta movies. And I mean, it works, it's competent, it knows what it's doing, I just got a bit bored towards the latter part of the movie because by then, despite it's touches of surreality, I'd figured most of what was going on (except one bit that was genuinely surprising and intersting).
In the end though, the movie has that aura that a certain type of people will love this movie, I'm just not one of those poeple.

JP Jeunet's perfectly pitched little charmer is one for wistful romantics everywhere. Amelie's unrelenting desire to anonymously bring happiness to those around her offers an object lesson in self improvement. A Masterpiece from start to finish.

"Amelie" is a fabulous movie that shows us to care not only for ourselves but also for the life of others. Well worth watching. (I recommend to watch it in French with Subtiltles, million times better than in English!)

Tthis is a very nice film - hard to believe this is the same actress that appauled on the da vinci code. don't let that put you off - this is one quirky and emmensely enjoyable film.

So charming, if you like paris and quirkey story.
Definitley one for a winter afternoon.
I have a feeling that the subtitles didn't do the dialouge justice though.
