Product description

Product Description

When Montmartre-dwelling Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) discovers a hidden collection of childhood toys in her apartment and conspires to return them to their now-elderly owner, the happiness on the old man's face is enough to start her on a campaign of further good works. Thus she sends her father's gnome off on a tour of the world, begins a whispering campaign which helps her colleague Georgette find a boyfriend, and comes up with an imaginative way to stop a local grocer from being cruel to his employee. But even though Amelie brings happiness to her neighbours, she herself remains unlucky in love - that is, until she meets the handsome Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz).

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 the DVD edition.

I absolutely adore this film. Everything about it. Jean-Pierre Jeunet is one of my two favourite directors who creates something magical. The attention to detail in the lovely story, the sets, the characters is superb. From the outset this film is uplifting, funny, observant, creative. There is so much going on within it that it is worthy of watching more than once! And when you've finished, have a look at Jeunet's other films too!

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.

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.

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