When Montmartre-dwelling Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) discovers a hidden collection of childhood toys in her apartment and conspires to return them to their now-elderly owner, the happiness on the old man's face is enough to start her on a campaign of further good works. Thus she sends her father's gnome off on a tour of the world, begins a whispering campaign which helps her colleague Georgette find a boyfriend, and comes up with an imaginative way to stop a local grocer from being cruel to his employee. But even though Amelie brings happiness to her neighbours, she herself remains unlucky in love - that is, until she meets the handsome Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz).

This is a charming and touching feel-good film about a young girl who makes magic in other peoples' lives. It has the light touch that many European films have. Highly recommended!

Amelie is an excellent French comedy with several bitter-sweet moments that is done in a characteristically European tradition. Audrey Tautou's performance as Amelie is outstanding, as if the role had been specially written for her. Funny in an intelligent way, and a great antidote to all the slapstick nonsense which all too often comes our way from America.

Very sweet movie with a great tongue in cheek humour.
