Great Film. Appalling dubbing, 11 Nov. 2003
Having read some of the other reviews, I thought I'd add my two penny's worth. I caught this film when it first came out in the cinema and loved it. The imagination and the atmosphere were magical. Another reviewer's comment about the Brothers Grimm was spot on. But this was when seen in French with English subtitles. Excited by this I got it on video straightaway and couldn't believe how badly they had destroyed the film with really bad dubbing. It felt characterless and flat - no resonance with the film characters. I am still trawling for the DVD in French with English subtitles. It can't be that difficult. I had hoped Amelie might generate enough demand for this but I haven't found it yet.
