“Amelie has no boyfriend. She’s tried once or twice, but the results were a let down. Instead, she cultivates a taste for small pleasures: dipping her hand into sacks of grain, cracking creme brulee with a teaspoon, and skipping stones at St. Martin’s canal.” —Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Le Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain
Amélie *Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain* (2001) “Amelie, an innocent and naive girl in Paris, with her own sense of justice, decides to help those around her and along the way, discovers love.”
