Product Description

Amazon.ca

Perhaps the most charming movie of all time, Amélie is certainly one of the top 10. The title character (the bashful and impish Audrey Tautou) is a single waitress who decides to help other lonely people fix their lives. Her widowed father yearns to travel but won't, so to inspire the old man she sends his garden gnome on a tour of the world; with whispered gossip, she brings together two cranky regulars at her café; she reverses the doorknobs and reprograms the speed dial of a grocer who's mean to his assistant. Gradually she realizes her own life needs fixing, and a chance meeting leads to her most elaborate stratagem of all. This is a deeply wonderful movie, an illuminating mix of magic and pragmatism. Fans of the director's previous films (Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children) will not be disappointed; newcomers will be delighted. --Bret Fetzer

Review

Attention, DVD événement! Sans être parfait (absence d’un véritable making of, léger bruit vidéo), cette édition est un petit bijou, à commencer par ses menus inventifs, animés et musicaux. La définition – lissée - de l’image s'associe parfaitement avec les couleurs saturées, la luminosité gérée à merveille et en parfaite adéquation avec la photo si particulière du film. Les voix sont claires, la musique dynamique et enveloppante, les effets à la fois précis et puissants, avec peu de différences entre les pistes surround DD et DTS. Les extras sont nombreux (regroupés au sein des différents univers d’Amélie) et de qualité: interview et commentaire audio passionnants du réalisateur, court-métrage réussi, bêtisier attendrissant, reportage complice sur la promotion du film ou la création de l’album photos, séquences d’essais des acteurs, ou galerie variée de photos, affiches et storyboards… Une édition à se procurer de toute urgence ! Note technique : 4/5. -- TESTandCO.com

Serveuse à Montmartre, Amélie s'est découvert un but : réparer la vie des autres. Elle s'y emploie avec bonheur lorsque surgit un garçon étrange : Nino, collectionneur de photomatons ratés. Un jeu de cache-cache commence... -- Synopsis

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for french speaking users July 7 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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 ?

By Eliza
This movie, in the first few minutes can completely capture your attention and will you to see the glorious middle and finally the end to the dream. Audrey Tatou masterfully makes this movie what it is. Her enigmatic and at the same time bold style in this movie makes you care so much about her character's life and "fabuleux destin" (Amazing destiny). I cannot advise more than to see this movie as soon as possible. For me, for a little while at least, it made me think how much more life can hold than what we live normally.

Ce n'est pas une comédie, ni un drame, ni un film fantastique, c'est simplement un film d'émotions. Des émotions à fleur de peau et des émotions aussi profondes que le gouffre de Padirac, des émotions qui n'ont qu'une semaine ou un mois de vie passée et à venir, sans compter le présent évanescent, et des émotions qui durent toute une vie, de la plus tendre enfance à la plus profonde des tombes, du temps où la mémoire n'existe pas encore à un temps où la mémoire surgit d'au-delà de la tombe, des crêtes d'un glacier dans un massif montagneux toujours blanc. Des émotions qu'on ressent au bord d'une tasse de café dans un bar, ou dans la nuit effrayante de quelque train fantôme. Des émotions à ne plus savoir quoi en faire, même si cela ne fait pas de vous un légume, car encore faut-il avoir le cœur d'un artichaut pour cela, et ce n'est donné qu'aux artichauts d'avoir le cœur chaud et le regard perçant mais tendre. Mais faites très attention dans cette vie à tout ce qui vous regarde, comme les caméras, les appareils photos et les nains de jardin, et même à tout ce qui ne vous regarde pas car s'ils ne vous regardent pas c'est que vous les regardez et qu'ils essaient de vous faire croire qu'ils ne vous ont pas vus.

Format:DVD
I watched this movie by accident. I was killing time. Soon, I found myself riveted to the movie.
It is a beautiful and sweet story. The story made me feel like a 14 year old falling in love. I am not going to go over the plot - I am going to talk about feelings. I felt light - as if a weight had been taken off my shoulders. My eyes got misty. That hasn't happened for the last 20 years. I was left with a smile and I went to sleep peacefully. This is a MUST WATCH!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Movie Ever! July 17 2002
I just can't say enough good things about this movie. It is funny, touching, romantic, adventurous, creative and beautiful. You just can't guess what Amelie will do the next in the movie, which make it very interesting and entertaining. It even lingers in your mind afterwards. I also heard about the Amelie effect... People act more kindly after watching the movie. Amelie is such a great movie that (to be honest) I felt like I am enlightened. The experience was priceless!

1.0 out of 5 stars HARD CODED SUBS!!! Sept. 21 2013
By sam TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fabulous Escapism of Amelie June 14 2003
Much crtiticism has been aimed at Jean-Pierre Jeunet for the way that he has "tarted up" Paris and in particular, Montmatre for this story of a day-dreaming do-gooder who cannot find her own true love (if Austen's Emma has been born a century later across the English Channel she might well be Amelie). But surely that is the point of cinema - in some part, we wish to escape the reality and drudgery of life for a couple of hours in which we can have our fantasies played out on screen. I must admit, that had I seen the Montmatre of the movie when I visited Paris in the mid-90's I might never have left.
Much of the charm of this movie comes from a star-making turn by newcomer, Audrey Tatou - her dark eyes are deep wells into which this viewer would love to jump and her cheeky grin is infectious - you find yourself giving off the same grin as you watch her commit her samaritan acts or in the case of the tyrannical grocer, Collignon, bring him down a rung ot two. Of course Tatou is greatly supported by the enfant terrible of French cinema, Mathieu Kassovitz, a world away from his character in La Haine, and inhabiting the role of romantic leading man with great aplomb. Jeunet regular, Dominique Pinon and Yolande Moreau as the weeping widow/concierge add deft touches of humour to a uniformly excellent supporting cast.
The look of the film is also its biggest drawcard - from the bright greens of the Metro to the fiery reds of the Porn Emporium where Nino works, the film is bathed in a glorious light and dazzles with each viewing. Jeunet came back to France after the traumatic experience of filming Alien Resurrection and with this film he shows that he can count himself amongst the great cinematic artists (along with Baz Luhrmann and Todd Haynes) working today.

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. Read more
