Don't get me wrong, this move is a masterpiece in it's every aspects. Also the video and sound quality is there.

The problem is that the movie has English subtitles burn-in and I wish I would've known that before making this purchase. If you're looking for the clean french version of this movie, don't get the alliance release of it because you won't be able to remove the english subtitles.

How hard would it have been to get the option to turn them on or off ?

This is a total No-No! There are hard coded subs in the video! Why!!!!?

The reason I was getting this was for the French commentary by Jeunet, and because it is, of course, a film I greatly enjoy. However, because of the subs which are forced, I would consider this a MAJOR pass!

This is one of my favorite movies and this is the version I had hoped I was getting. It is in French with the proper English subtitles.

How much do I love this movie?? In 2001 when I watched this in theater I knew that when I had my first daughter I would name her Amelie. 9 years later I got that opportunity. This movie is magical and makes your heart soar and makes you think. The music by Yann Tiersen also is awe inspiring. Watching this in Blueray versus DVD makes the colors stronger which is what you need to watch

You will probably either enjoy this film or dislike it. Probably no in-between. It is neither realistic nor typical comedy. It's an adult fairy tale. It resembles "The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" in a way.

Amelie (2001)
Comedy, Fantasy, Romance
122 minutes, French Language
Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Starring Audrey Tautou and Mathieu Kassovitz

Several of my favorite directors produce movies which have a distinct feel, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet is one of them. He can take the darkest topics and infuse them with his own brand of humor. Amelie is not one of his darker films, but it feels like part of his familiar world.

The star of Amelie is Audrey Tautou and she shines in the role. The movie isn't serious at all and is filled with amusing stories and delivered in a whimsical way. We are introduced to the characters by a narrator who tells us their likes and dislikes. I love the use of narration when it's done well.

Amelie is a young woman who accidentally discovers a box of childhood treasures left hidden in her apartment by a previous tenant. She decides to track him down to return it and resolves to do similar good deeds if the outcome is favorable. She's not completely good though. One person in particular annoys her so she decides to play a few pranks to teach him a lesson.

The movie has plenty of mystery and eventually turns into an unconventional romance. The color scheme places an emphasis on red and green and the world seems surreal. The setting is Paris, but this isn't the Paris that I know from my visits.

Audrey Tautou is an incredible actress. She can convey a lot of emotion without saying a word. Her face is one of the most expressive that I have seen. If you have only seen her in The Da Vinci Code, Amelie is a great chance to see her act in her native language.

I know people who would avoid seeing Amelie because it's in French and it's a romance. That would be a mistake. The movie is a pure delight and has a unique style. It won't appeal to everyone, but those who like it will really love it.
