Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s playful modern fairytale made Audrey Tautou an overnight star as a mischievous Parisienne pursuing love and happiness in her own inimitable fashion.

At a tiny Parisian café, the adorable yet painfully shy Amelie accidentally discovers a gift for helping others. Soon Amelie is spending her days as a Cupid, guardian angel and all-around do-gooder. But when she bumps into a handsome stranger (Mathieu Kassovitz), will she find the courage to become the star of her very own love story?

Amelie is both the story of its heroine’s eccentric quest for love and an affectionate, shamelessly old-fashioned portrait of Paris, particularly the picturesque area around Montmartre and the eccentric characters living there. Visually brilliant, fast-moving and full of cinephile in-references, Amelie is also instantly accessible and entertaining.

As Jeunet and the brilliant cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel spin the camera around Paris, from Montmartre to Notre Dame, and Yann Tiersen’s unmistakable piano and accordion soundtrack swells, it’s hard not to fall under the spell of this moonstruck romance.
