I happened to watch this pretty French movie Amelie last day on World Movies channel. It is a different movie made with a fresh approach. There is a feel of the German movie Run Lola Run in the picturisation and characterisation. But Amelie is more of a romantic comedy.
It is the story of a shy waitress, who decides to change the life of those around for better and ultimately finds true love of her life. It is also the story of a bunch of absurd and eccentric characters who pops up in every other scene out of nowhere. But the characterization is so good that we can relate to them without any alienation.
A generous dose of surrealism is added to the movie that adds to the magic of the movie. You dont feel astonished when you see the paintings talking to each other.
All in all I strongly recommend Amelie for those who like fresh and green movies.
