amélie

amélie artamélie

This DVD has been sitting in my deck for the better half of a week now. Everything about this film I love...

One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to learn the French language (French-boycotters be damned!). One of the main reasons for this was this very movie. When I saw the film in theaters I was so taken with the character of Amélie - Audrey Tautou was a perfect bit of casting for this part. So cute, so charming. And I still have a crush on Mathieu Kassovitz. Every bit of this film is lovely, from the use of bold and deep colors, to the humor and poetry behind the scene with the goldfish. I would definitely place this film on my Top 5 (if I had one), and I'm a little saddened by the rarity of a gem like Amélie.
