Amélie (originally known as Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain) is a 2001 French-language romantic comedy film directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Written by Jeunet with Guillaume Laurant, the film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmartre. It tells the story of a shy waitress, played by Audrey Tautou, who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better, while facing her own loneliness and isolation.
I love this film as it is quirky and creative, as well as beautifully shot and acted. Its underscores the importance of small acts of kindness and it highlights how we all belong to one another.
