I thought this movie was great even I'm not understand the story at the beginning. The stories take a time and make me bored. Therefore, repeat for the second time can to understand the story. Amelie movie it had a very strong plot and good characterization. Amelie is one of the most original character with her big eyes, big smile and short haircut really did the trick. Is a unique role which she succeeds making this man happy and now sets out to make everybody she can happy, in subtle and amusing ways. For example, when her neighbours tells her a story about her late husband. Amelie reads some letters from this man, "invents" a new letter by piecing together some of the old ones and sends it to the neighbours with a note saying it was lost for 30 years. Besides that, writer-director Jean-Pierre Jeunet gives the story a feeling somewhere between fairy tale and documentary. Jean-Pierre Jeunet film also is gently moving, surprisingly funny and sometime very touching.
In conclusion, Amelie is a wonderful movie because it changes your perception of the world and how you affect it.
