Amelie (2002)

Details Release Date: Jul 16, 2002; Movie Rated: R; Genres: Comedy, Foreign Language, Romance; With: Audrey Tautou; Distributor: Miramax

The real delight amid Amélie's whimsy and feel-good sweetness is not just Tautou's doe-eyed charm as a waify waitress who overcomes her solitude and happily meddles in the lives of others. It's that along with the flights of fancy is a bit of the bittersweet -- how easy it is to both fight against and be deeply attached to one's own isolation.
