Day 26: Your Favorite Foreign Language Film – Amelie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001)

I love how simple the approach with this film is, but still manages to get through you every single time. Amelie probably lives her life to the fullest and enjoys every single moment of it. Tautou sells every scene she’s in and does it with so much fun and wit that it highly affects your enjoyment of the movie. Also, how beautiful was France in the film!?!??! If you’re not a fan yet, then you’ll probably fall in love with that place.

Jean Pierre-Jeunet’s screenplay and direction treats the film as it’s one big fantasy dream sequence. Far fetched? Yes. Possible? Yes as well. How I wish I’d have to live my life like Amelie, even just in a dream. 🙂
