Amelie, a young waitress in a bar in Montmartre, spends her time observing people and lets her imagination wander. She has set a goal: to do good to those around her. The road is lined with Amélie meetings: Georgette, the hypochondriac tobacconist; Lucien; Madeleine Wallace, the building superintendent; Raymond alias "Glass Man," his neighbour … This pursuit of happiness leads Amélie to get to know Nino Quincampoix. It divides his time between a ghost train and a sex-shop, and seeks to identify the pictures found torn in several Photomaton booths Photomaton in Paris.

I love this movie ! It is touching and an escape for over an hour and a half ! The images and music makes this film particularly beautiful.

Watch it, you'll love ! ^^
