3 out of 10 A delicate style
David from Dublin, 12 Nov 2012
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.

5 out of 10 A Modern Farytale
Brian from Dublin, 15 Apr 2010
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.

4 out of 10 Fabulous
Peggy from Longford, 12 Aug 2007
"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!)

3.5 out of 10 Charming movie
Olwyn from Westmeath, 30 Jan 2008
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.

What's it about....
Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) is a young woman who glides through the streets of Paris as quietly as a mouse. With wide eyes and a tiny grin, she sees the world in a magical light, discovering minor miracles every day. A shy and reserved person whose favorite moments are spent alone skimming stones into the water, Amelie was raised by a pair of eccentrics who falsely diagnosed her with a heart problem at the age of six and so limited her exposure to the outside world. Now...
