Amelie (Audrey Tatou) is a shy waitress in a Montmarte cafe. After returning a long-lost childhood treasure to a former occupant of her apartment and seeing the effect it has on him, she decides to set out on a mission to make others happy and in the meantime pursues a quirky guy who collects discarded photo booth pictures.
This is a refreshing break from the melancholiac foreign films I've seen beforehand. Tatou is enjoyable to watch. Again, most foreign films revolve around death (and occasionally sex). Not Amelie; it's about how to live life to the fullest.
My Rating: *****
