AMELIE/LE FABULEUX DESTIN D’AMÉLIE POULAIN (15) 2001 FRANCE JEUNET, JEAN-PIERRE £19.99
When Montmartre-dwelling Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) discovers a hidden collection of childhood toys in her apartment and conspires to return them to their now-elderly owner, the happiness on the old man’s face is enough to start her on a campaign of further good works. Thus she sends her father’s gnome off on a tour of the world, begins a whispering campaign which helps her colleague Georgette find a boyfriend, and comes up with an imaginative way to stop a local grocer from being cruel to his employee. But even though Amelie brings happiness to her neighbours, she herself remains unlucky in love – that is, until she meets the handsome Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz).
