Beyond director Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s delightfully charming and utterly romantic (in every sense of the word) AMELIE being of cinematic note for César, Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe recognition, status as one of the most successful international releases of all time that has been roundly embraced by cinephiles the world over, and in possession of one of the most beloved scores in recent memory – it also introduced the world to the thoroughly enchanting Audrey Tatou, the pleasures of the crack of a spoon against the brittle, caramelized top of an ice-cold crème brûlée, and the magic of traveling garden gnomes. With Mathieu Kassovitz, Rufus, and Jamel Debbouze.
“It’s hard not to fall under the spell of this moonstruck romance.” (Rolling Stone)
