Jean-Pierre Jeunet, “Amelie”

“Amélie” is a fanciful comedy about a young woman who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her, creating a world exclusively of her own making. Shot in over 80 Parisian locations, acclaimed director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (“Delicatessen”; “The City of Lost Children”) invokes his incomparable visionary style to capture the exquisite charm and mystery of modern-day Paris through the eyes of a beautiful ingenue.

Release date: November 16, 2001 (USA)
Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Featured song: La Valse d’Amélie (orchestra version)

A great film on the top of my favorites list- great photography, especially with the use of color filters; great soundtrack; actors who really know their characters; and a funny but heart touching story.
