Jean-Pierre Jeunet creates a magical world in “Amélie.” Audrey Tautou stars as the eccentric Amélie Poulain, who one day finds an old tin of keepsakes, returns it to its rightful place, and is inspired to do more good deeds. We follow Amélie on her journey to find the meaning of everything.

Such a vibrant, crisp script is rarely found in movies today. These actors are not just acting – they are the characters. They are pieces of the intricately designed, puzzle-like world Jeunet has created. The French dialogue is enchanting; every sentence is like an arpeggio from a flute.

Yann Tiersen supplies the mood with the music. Each scene is sprinkled with waves of melodies and sounds with origins ranging from the accordion to a typewriter.
