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

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 ?

Format: DVD
Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet is a master of his craft--pure and simple. His ability to make even the most mundane situations and twist and turn them into something magical is beyond fantastic.

And if this movie doesn't want you to hop on a plane and go to Montmartre in Paris to experience this world of Amelie, then there is no hope for you.

As far as the DVD, it's well worth it for the extras (and fret not, most of the stuff is in English). The "Look of Amelie" shows how precise and prepared the director was and the cinematographer actually steals the show with his explanation of various shots and scenes. There is more--funny outtakes, screen tests (hey, why don't more DVDs thorw those on?), a couple of Q&A's with the cast and crew as well as a nice face-to-face with Jeunet himself.

The entire package is well worth having.

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.Read more ›

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!!

Amélie is a film demands to be seen more than once.
The first time around you fall in love with its story and the artistic eccentricities.
The second time, details make more sense and the puzzle pieces fall together better than they did the first time.
The third time, with a keen eye and ear, you start to notice little visual symbols and musical cues that hold the movie together and make it a legitimately artistic film--and quite a bit more.
It is fundamentally a love story, cute, but which offers so much more than the average Hollywood picture so that the senses are always dazzled. There is magic here--magic that is convincing and heartfelt. There is humour. There is originality. There is also character. Amélie is a film that deserves a spot in your movie collection.

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!
