Amélie from Montmartre...

Eh eh !! Vive la france !
Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain is the kind of movie everybody expects to see when they go to a movie theater. Cinema can't make us dream anymore like it used to, but Jean-Pierre Jeunet found the receipt for beautiful movies. He already made us dream with La Cité des Enfants Perdus, but it was in another world, and in other times. Amélie Poulain is a young girl living a regular life in Paris, when she discovers that she can, with very little means, change the others' lives. She can give happiness to people, without waiting for reward. In fact, she doesn't do anything special, but she can, for example give sight to an old blind man, just making him cross the street. She can cure hypocondria... But she doesn't need any power, just a pure heart. What about her? Who will help her to be happy and change her life? Who will take care of her? She seems to be unable to help herself. But I told you, it's a fairy tale. There must be a prince charming...
