Jun 30, Paul Bryant rated it it was ok Shelves: Two guys Jeunet and Carot made Delicatessen in which is an all time favourite vandrrschelden mine, then followed it up with The City of Lost Children four years later.

Hard to believe, this second film is much weirder and much better, one of my top ten movies. Maybe they just made it for me. I think it gave people the creeps. It gave me the creeps but I like that kind of creeps.

So Jeunet and Caro had by now typed themselves as steampunk surrealists. T Two guys Jeunet and Carot made Delicatessen in which is an all time favourite of mine, then followed it up with The City of Lost Children four years later.

But hey, with a big paycheck he could do what he wanted to do now, which was Amelie. As you no doubt know, Amelie is cutesy, fey, whimsical, a romantic comedy with no possible relation to real life, all goldenhued and cloying, which rhymes with annoying, and I expect has made more than a few people thwow up into their handbags. I see what they mean. Jeunet deliberately removed all the graffiti and litter from his exteriors by digital means. So am I really saying that Ram is nearly as good as Abbey Road?

If there is a guilty movie pleasure this is it.

Leaving aside Italian nunsploitation movies, of course. Amelie unwittingly phones a sex shop to speak to one of their assistants but they mistake the nature of the call.



So are you one of those guys who only like Battleship Potemkin and Last year at Marienbad? No, I hate those too. What kind of monster are you?? This is Amelie criticising old movies for not being realistic – she’s got some nerve All right, so what we got — cute shy loner girl meets cute shy loner boy in a manner that redefined the words convoluted and contrived.

At the end — oh, spoiler! Underneath the fairydust is a borderline-deranged passive aggressive type. The fairydust is mixed with ground glass. The soundtrack album is great. Any fans of Gus Viseur or Tony Murena will lap this stuff up. The nostalgic appropriation of Paris in Amelie has enchanted, concerned or angered the viewers, and become one of the most critically discussed elements of the film.

However, by recycling and stimulating the collective memories fed by many past pictorial and cinematic sources, and by bringing his own personal imagery of the city, Jeunet has successfully created an enticing postmodern cityscape, which contributed to the iaabelle of the film, and is part and parcel of his aesthetic signature.

I mean, who needs sentences like that in their life. Not you, not me. Two star book, five star movie. I feel like that occasionally but then I lie down until the feeling passes.

Nevertheless, as is the usual occurrence for me, I found the book to be superior to the film. I must admit it aamelie some time for me to manifest a connection with the character of Amelie. It was not she who kept me at arms length, but rather the gloom and dreariness I felt amongst her personal isolation that disturbed me deeply. I recognized that Amelie’s isolation mirrore I had the pleasure of attending the film, “Amelie: I recognized that Amelie’s isolation mirrored mine at the time.

I wanted to have a greater association with Amelie, yet Somehow, I justified my vandfrschelden and need for remoteness. This darkness did not last.

Some chapters in, I found myself smiling and enjoying the comedic amekie that is Amelie. When I finally pushed away the cloud that kept me from understanding and bonding with Amelie, I was able to give both character and story, the chance it deserved.

She is a fabulous young woman. A character difficult to turn from and easy to love. Le Fabuleaux destin d’Amelie Poulain,” is a story about a young girl with blind resolve to make an enthusiastic difference in people’s lives.


As she works towards this impressive purpose, she is also struggling with her own isolation. It is at this interjection, that the story blooms and shares its charm with its audience. The narrators quote of Amelie is a precise and true illustration of who Amelie is.

It’s a perfect moment. A soft light, a scent in the air, the quiet murmur of the city. A surge of love, an urge to help mankind overcomes her. The book is fabulous. It can be found on my Goodread’s favorites bookshelf.

I give this book 5 stars.
