Nearly everyone I know owns this DVD. This film is cinematic poison that crawls through your veins and slowly eats at the brain; a Big Lie for the only child. Amelie shows the viewer the world through a lens of adorable soft-focus whimsy, grasping desperately for any redeemable quality in its caricature of humanity and packing all it finds into a cannon aimed to strike the softest spots in the human psyche, causing instantaneous and fatal hemmoraging. Amelie is like the gentle myth of Santa or the Easter Bunny, a sugar-coated filter-tinted broken promise to be fed to the lonely, the dreaming, the disaffected mass whose very existence the film brushes away like dead leaves on the drive; in attempting to affirm all that is right, one must acknowledge all that is wrong. Heven help all who find the terrible shadow of the latter blackening out the former.
