95. Amelie (2001)
directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet
Amelie is a whimsical, vibrant story about a girl looking for love. Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet uses frenetic camera movement, quick cuts, and colorful scenarios to place us neatly inside Amelie’s world. Clearly inspired by the French New Wave, the film retains an intimate- yet theatrical- quality. Audrey Tatou’s performance as the title character turned her into an international star.
