Amélie (2001)

Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s beautiful and fantastical romantic comedy is about a sweet girl who devises extraordinary ways of bringing cheer to the needful and happiness to herself. The film is an absolute joy to watch, warming your heart and making you laugh many times.

Audrey Tautou plays Amélie in her career-defining role. We defy you not to fall in love with her.

We vote Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain our favourite film of all time. Not to be missed!

  1. If I only had one chance to watch a movie in my whole lifetime, I’d hope to hell it was Amelie. It’s definitely my favorite, and I try to convince everyone I know to watch it. 🙂

  2. This is also one of my all time favorites!
    Thank you for following HoB. Much appreciated! I’ll be hanging around here…

  3. One of the best films of 2000’s, possibly even of all-time. A unique story that will capture your imagination and heart until the very end.

  4. Ik kijk films niet vaak, maar deze heb ik toch zeker al vijf keer gezien. Blijft geweldig! De muziek ook, overigens. Yann Tiersen is een goede gast.
