This movie is so delightful I wish I could have my memory of it erased so I could watch it again for the first time.

Highly quirky film, charming at times. Not all that satisfying if you are looking for a point to this movie.

Gave this one a re-watch in preparation for a trip to Paris next month. Just as beautiful as I remember.

Amelie manipulates people using lies and trespassing and other crimes to harm or falsely improve innocent people's lives around her. Eventually the creepy stalker creeps upon other creepy loner who saves photo mementos of strangers. They play stalker games with each other until the meet and make love without speaking and ride off deliriously happy. No mention of how their social degeneracy and criminal behavior might make for awkwardness or apprehension towards each other.
This disturbing movie is all about contrived easy answers, double standards and tidy bows. There is no redemption and no satisfaction.

This highly influential film has a distinctive narrative style and has even inspired a couple of advertising campaigns. The main character's efforts to improve the lives of those around her will make you smile. Some nudity and language not suitable for children. Henri Henri is a similar Quebecois film.

There's helpful commentary on disc 2. I wish I'd watched it first, would have had greater appreciation for the complexity of the movie while viewing it.

A zany romantic-comedy that combines sharply-drawn characters with (brief) animations and urban folklore themes. Very entertaining!

This film has such a creative story-telling ability, you will be unsure as to whether you are reading a book or watching a movie! (I'm sure the subtitles have something to do with that)
You will love Amelie, her sweet nature and her adventurous spirit.
Combined with brilliant acting and beautiful sets, Yann Tiersen presents us with yet another incredible soundtrack. I cannot suggest this film more.

Sexual Content: This is a French movie so bare breasts are displayed briefly from time to time. There are three brief scenes of sexual intercourse viewed from behind the male from the waist up.
