Amélie

Amélie is a foreign film I recently watched and it is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while! It stars Audrey Tautou as Amélie who is an extremely quirky waitress that by chance finds a boy of toys of a boy that previously lived in her apartment and finds a clever way of giving it back to him. This leads her to do good deeds for all her neighbors. I won’t give away too much of the plot if someone decides to rent it!

What made this movie different from other foreign films I’ve seen is that it was in French! Usually when I watch a foreign film, they’re in Spanish so I can pick up on certain things without relying too heavily on the subtitles. But in this case, it wasn’t too much work looking at the subtitles and everything flowed well! I loved the subtle twists and the humor. It was definitely a different type of humor than I’m used to but I enjoyed it a lot! I highly recommend for anyone to rent it one weekend.

Instead of posting the trailer, I decided to post my favorite scene of Amélie helping a blind man in the city. I read online the director was inspired to make this scene based on something he saw in real life!
