Europe Loves - Amelie

Dir: Jean-Pierre Jeunet



120 mins



Audrey Tautou, Matthieu Kassovitz

Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) glides through the streets of Paris. With wide eyes and a tiny grin, she sees the world in a magical light, discovering minor miracles every day.

A shy and reserved person whose favourite moments are spent alone skimming stones into the water, Amélie was raised by a pair of eccentrics who falsely diagnosed her with a heart problem at the age of six and limited her exposure to the outside world.

Now a free and independent woman, Amélie has an aptitude for spying on her neighbours, and entertains herself by enacting a series of homemade, kind-hearted practical jokes. She returns a long-forgotten box of childhood knick-knacks to its proper owner, sends her father’s garden troll on a trip around the world, and creates a love connection at the cafe where she works between a hypochondriac druggist and a beer-drinking grouch.

But when the day is done, Amélie finds one stone unturned and decides to work her magic on object of her own affections, Nino (Matthieu Kassovitz), a man she’s never met.
