Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain

Amelie is by far one of my favorite movies--& is one of my favorite soundtracks, have you seen it? if you haven't you should definitely add it to your "must see" list.

i first watched Amelie the summer before my senior year of high school. i had a thing for aimlessly searching shelves at the movie rental place in hopes of finding treasures gone unnoticed. i loved the foreign movie section & ended up watching almost the entire shelf that summer.Amelie happened to be one of those treasures i had searched for... i was immediately hooked {like the first time i watched Grease in kindergarten & proceeded to watch it 10+ times a week}. I love everything about it. its such a beautiful film which captures the heart of any hopeless romantic & dreamer.i hadn't seen it in a while until last saturday... however, i tend to always have the soundtrack on hand to listen to as i write papers and study. but last weekend my good friend Quinn invited me over to watch a movie & bravely let me choose which one. I chose Amelie & i wasn't sure of how it would be received-- ex-roommate from freshman year hated it, seeing as how she "had to read" the subtitles...
but Quinn loved it & my love for the wonderful story was remembered...

Amelie has a strange feeling of absolute harmony. It's a perfect moment. A soft light, a scent in the air, the quiet murmur of the city. A surge of love, an urge to help mankind overcomes her. -narrartor

    Ps: You posted wonderful images from the movie :-)

  2. I haven't seen this in quite a few years. I think I might rent it next time I'm in a movie mood.

    Fun fact: When I was in Paris I got to see the little store where she buys her groceries and the gnome was there.

  3. i saw this for the first time a few months ago. loved it! so quirky and sweet.

  4. I'm so happy I found this post of yours! Amelie is my fave film too - and the soundtrack was composed by my hero (who I got to meet on my birthday!)

    Always thrilled to meet another Amelie fan.
    Jeunet's films are really something special. Have you seen "A very long engagement"? xx
