Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tatou) is a young woman who, as a child, was discouraged from having friends by her neurotic mother and father. Now grown, she resides in the artsy Montmartre section of Paris and waitresses in a local café. One day, when Amélie finds a child's box hidden inside her wall, she returns it to its owner, and when it makes him very happy, she realizes that small deeds can have a big impact on people's lives.
Bit by bit, through her almost imperceptible gestures, she begins to heal the wounded lives of those around her, if only those in her small part of the world. Eventually, Amélie seeks out potential happiness for herself. She runs into porn shop worker Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz) whose hobby is collecting discarded pictures from photo booths. But can Amélie bring herself to do the impossible:
Meet him, talk to him, love him?
It’s time to pay them a visit (French)
To please the dominant male (French)
Your heart will become breakable as my skeleton
Fanpage Audrey Tautou (French)
Mathieu Kassovitz's Official Website (French)
The title translate as “The Fabulous Destiny of Amelie Poulain”
The part of Amelie was originally meant for actress Emily Watson. She wanted the part but had to decline because she didn't speak French.
