At a tiny Parisian café, the adorable yet painfully shy Amélie accidentally discovers a gift for helping others. Soon Amelie is spending her days as a matchmaker, guardian angel, and all-around do-gooder. But when she bumps into a handsome stranger, will she find the courage to become the star of her very own love story?

      Film Threat

      Joyous. This is a film that will put a goofy grin on your face from the opening frame, through to the credits, out into the lobby, the whole way home, and possibly even till you fall asleep.

      Philadelphia Inquirer

      A feel-good movie, in the absolute best sense.

      Washington Post

      A movie for aesthetically hungry moviegoers: wildly amusing, sometimes sardonic and always touching. There's so much here, and all of it delightful.

      Miami Herald

      At two hours, the movie is probably 15 minutes too long -- the final half-hour in particular could have used some trimming -- but complaining about having too much of a good thing makes one sound like a grouch.

      Portland Oregonian

      A big-hearted French movie that shines with wit, beauty, humor, sunshine and the love of love.

      New York Post

      A slick, sweet, fast-paced, feel-good romantic fantasy that's fairly irresistible if you can keep your cynicism in check for a couple of hours.

      Village Voice

      The screen is saturated with Gallic whimsy and the romance of Montmartre in the person of Amélie.
