Amelie (French Movie)

Recommended Posts

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! There are several quirky French films that I've seen, and several actors from those appeared in this one. Heartwarming, cute, funny, magical, touching, and odd.

 

It follows a young dreamer and her blend of imagination and reality as she encounters people in her daily life. Will she ever find love?

 

 

Other films you may like:

 

Le Roi de Coeur (also listed as King of Hearts),

Delicatessen,

The Hairdresser's Husband,

Johnny Stecchino (Johnny Toothpick),

Leningrad Cowboys Go America,

Strictly Ballroom,

The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe.

Amelie was an instant classic.

The same dude also made this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1981107/

 

They're very different in style, story and presentation, but both share that magical feel-good vibe.

Amelie is in my top 5 for sure. I've watched it over and over. 

 

One of my Russian friends watched it a few years ago and told me "after this, I understand that American films are shit!" Keep in mind that the American films they get over here are Hollywood blockbusters, like Batman. 
 

Johnny Stecchino is hilarious. You will also like Benigni's other films if you liked this one. Tiger in the Snow, The Monster, Life is Beautiful...
