Amélie (Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain)

In one of the most beloved and acclaimed romantic comedies ever made, Audrey Tatou plays a naive Montmartre waitress who performs random acts of kindness for others, but privately leads a lonely, melancholic life bereft of love.

Amélie—an imaginative, whimsical masterpiece from the director of Delicatessen and City of Lost Children—is set to a distinctive soundtrack by Yann Tiersen.

Presented in association with the French Cultures Festival
