About the film: ‘Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain’ finds its charm in the little things. The story about Amélie (Audrey Tautou) is a modern-day fairy tale and that is exactly how the entire film looks.

We have a wonderful story about Amélie who decides to help people around her, making them happy. Not by doing great big things or giving money, but by little things. She helps her father by making him believe that his gnome from the garden is on a trip around the world, she helps a lonely neighbor by just visiting him, she helps a stranger by returning something she found in her home. On the way she falls in love with Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz) who’s hobby it is to collect photos from automatic photo booths.

The musical score by Yann Tiersen is almost as famous as the film and the film was nominated for 5 Oscars. Although the film is 20 years old it still has all its charm and will make you leave the aula with a smile on your face.
