#984. Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulin (2001)
Why It's In The Book: "Amélie could probably also go by the title The Fabulous Destiny of Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The writer/director had already revealed himself a gifted creator (with regular collaborator Marc Caro) of fantastic, half-familiar worlds…On its face, Amélie takes place in the real world. But using a remarkable array of playful (and often playfully literal) effects, Jeunet transforms contemporary France into a beautiful and surreal reflection of reality…the film – like its central character – is obsessed with tiny details and whimsical minutiae that keep the viewer tied to the quirky tall tale…
Jeunet’s best decision was casting Tautou, who radiates good nature but also displays a mischievous streak that goes with her sly smile and keeps the performance from becoming too saccharine." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Adolytsi - 10/10
"I could gush on and on about the technical aspects of this film and why it’s so well done, or about the brave choices the film makes that totally and completely work, but for once, I’d be doing a disservice to anyone who has yet to see the film; it simply must be experienced for yourself."
Chip Lary - 10/10
"I have sometimes heard people say that they fell in love with a movie character. I’ve never been able to tell if they mean that figuratively or literally. For me, I have never literally fallen in love with a movie character, but if ever there was one that I wanted to hold in my arms and reassure that she would find happiness and love, it’s Amelie Poulain."
Jay Cluitt - 10/10
"This is a delightful, light-hearted chocolate-box fantasy romance that only occasionally threatens to choke you on its saccharine sweetness."
Klaus Ming - 10/10
"a quirky romantic comedy with sumptuous cinematography"
Movie Guy Steve - 10/10
"It is utterly charming, endearing, and fun, filled with sweetness and joy."
Nicolas Krizan - 9/10
"maybe the ultimate »Manic Pixie Dream Girl«"
Siochembio - 8.5/10
"Like having too much cotton candy to eat at the fair."
Squish - 8/10
"It’s the kind of Romance film that a guy can tell his beer-guzzling, dart-playing mechanic friends about at a bar and not get beat-up for liking."
