Product description

AMELIE

From Amazon.co.uk

With its use of special effects to express the main character's internal emotions, Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amelie could have been mistaken for a French version of Ally McBeal; however, unlike Ally--"woe is me for I cannot find a man"--McBeal, Amelie is not distressed by the lack of men in her life, in fact the whole idea of sex seems to amuse her no end. Basic pleasures such as cracking the top of a Crème Brule offer her all the sensual satisfaction she needs and her existence in the "Paris of Dreams" is the stuff of fairy tales. Indeed, this cinematic treat must have worked wonders for the Paris tourist board: Jeunet's beautiful interpretation of Parisian life is depicted in all the vibrant colours you would expect from the director of Delicatessen.

On the DVD: Amelie has received an additional disc for this special edition release. Disc 1 is the same as the original single-disc release, with a choice of DTS or Dolby 5.1 sound and an 16.9 anamorphic widescreen picture with optional director's commentary. The second disc contains the new special features and, just like original disc, a lot of thought has gone into the access menu with its lavish graphics offering the choice of entering the Café, the Canal or the Station. Yet the most exciting extra in name--"Audrey Tautou's funny face"--is simply a series of out-takes which does little more than allow you to warm to Tautou as a person. The home movie includes the transformation of Tautou into Amelie and the creation of the "photo-booth album". There are also interesting interviews with Jeunet and the cast and crew, and a nice little section themed around the gnome and his travels. Along with this is a storyboard-to-screen exposition, behind-the-scenes pictures, scene tests, teasers and trailers. All in all a decent enough package, but hardly warranting the special edition label. It's hard not to wonder why Momentum didn't offer this set two months earlier. --Nikki Disney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I don't usually rate products I've bought unless I'm nagged by Amazon to do so. Therefore this will be my first time to give a review on my own volition. It was delivered yesterday and I've watched it three times now. This film is clever, funny, and visually stunning and heartwarming. Definitely worth the accolades it received. Worth every penny.

Two aspects of Tatou. Amelie is simply a delight, an real feel-good movie. A Very Long Engagement is a much darker, powerful film with a scary recreation of the Western Front and its horrors. Watch out for Marion Cotillard in a small but powerful role.

A fantastic duo of movies. Both heartwarming and sad, beautiful movies. Perfect for a girl's night in. If you are a fan of Audrey Hepburn then you need to see these films and have them available for any time when you feel a bit low. Perfect with chocolate and a glass of wine! Obviously they are French so there are subtitles but I acutally enjoy reading them and never find that it deviates from the viewing experience.

Jumped around a lot making it hard to follow. Although acting was good there didn't seem to be much storyline, would not recommend.

One of my favourite movies.
If you like Audrey Tautou, I recommend "Ensemble c'est tout", which is also very good
