Aro Recommended Amelie


France 2001, 116 minutes
Dir. Jean-Pierre Jeunet
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy / Fantasy, Girl-centric, Romance


Aroview: A charming romantic comedy stamped with the purely cinematic style of dir. Jean-Pierre Juenet, who here remixes intricate set pieces, editing wizardry, swanky-kitsch production design and droll humour to the max.

Audrey Tautou (think Audrey Hepburn meets Olive Oil) plays the ultra-sweet bobbed brunette who’s dedicated herself to solving other people’s problems, but finds her own romantic distraction while on the cupid trail. Safely recommended for those that prefer bubbly over a gutsy red, it’s a giddy visual confection in the mould of MOULIN ROUGE that has enjoyed a similarly fervent following.
