Amelie will steal your heart,
This review is from: Amelie [DVD]  (DVD)
Amelie is the enchanting story of a young Parisian woman who lives a rather solitary, introspective life. Gradually, however, she starts meddling in the lives of her neighbors and co-workers and finds that she loves doing it. She becomes fascinated by an odd young man who collects discarded instant-photos in the train station; with the use of some clever photos of herself, she finds happiness.
Two things make Amelie utterly irresistible: the outstanding script and the talented star. The French-language film is original, very funny, and intelligently written. When Amelie speaks directly to the audience, she is simply adorable. The star, Audrey Tatou, reminds you instantly of Audrey Hepburn. She is petite, perky, and irresistible. I enjoyed hearing the beautiful French spoken in the film; it added to the enjoyment of the film, making it seem lighter and more joyous. Amelie is a cute young lady who will steal your heart with her sweetness and love of life. You will leave the theatre feeling very happy.
