she invites-- nay, implores-- you to explore every inch of the fucked up haunted house that is her face

One of my absolute favourite movies. Everything about it is heartwarming, touching, quirky and well-done.

For some, it may be heartwarming to the point of naseua, but Audrey Tatou as Amelie Poulain is sweet, gentle and gorgeous, with the perfect amount of a devilish sense of humour and revenge. I always end up in tears throughout several points in the movie such as the scenes with the child's treasure box, when Amelie dreams of someone coming through her beaded doorway, and the final scooter scene , but I believe that merely stands as an testament to the effectiveness of Tatou's performance and Jeaunet's beautiful and eye-catching directing.

Also, a fantastic soundtrack that stirs up a vision of a dream-like Paris where the streets are lined with magic and mischief rather than dog poo poo.

5/5
