Amélie

Dazzling and delightful.

Audrey Tautou, France’s answer to Audrey Hepburn, glows with an otherworldly vitality in this most-charming of rom coms.

A lonely waitress who was raised believing she has a heart defect, Amélie sets out to bring happiness into other’s lives, one small gesture at a time.

Along the way, her own built-up defenses begin to subtly crack, offering her a far-fetched, but very real, shot at her own burst of joy through a romance with an equally one-of-a-kind dude.

If some movies are rays of sunshine, this Gallic winner offers up the whole blazing ball of fire.
