She'll change your life.

So last night at 3:30am, after an eventful night and a pie of thin crust pineapple pizza, I thought it'd be a wonderful idea to come back to my room and pop in a movie. Because afterall.... who sleeps before 6am? pshhhh. Amelie had been sitting on the floor for about three weeks, racking up late fees on my credit card bill. (Blockbuster charged me over $100 recently for unreturned movies and videogames, no joke).

Nominated for five academy awards in 2001, the French film starring Audrey Tautou definitely lived up to the hype. It's a quirky and fun film about a shy Amelie Poulain, who decides to secretly fix other people's lives while her own life suffers with isolation. For a better synopsis, go here. If you love trippy but heart-warming movies about Parisian life, Amelie will not let you down.

For those who have seen Jean-Pierre Jeunet's romantic French film, here is some background information and the filming locations of Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain in and around the Montmartre district of Paris.
