About the Film:
First things first. It’s French. Yes you would need subtitles. It is an abstract movie. Yes, you would need to use your brains. It twists human emotions with sheer logic. You would need a delicate heart to connect with it. On the contrary, it’s simple to understand. It eases your logic sense. It warms your heart. In short, the movie simplifies life for you.
Why should you watch it:
Jean-Pierre Jeunet has done an exceptional job in presenting the twisted screenplay into simple, understandable, yet subtle audio-video delight. The way the protagonist, Amélie grows out of hard-shelled cocoon, and lets the other characters in her life grow around her is mesmerising. The non-linear, unconventional plot along with the stark cinematography of the movie adds to the sheer credibility to it’s brilliance. It’s a must watch.
