Amelie offers a viewing experience that is nothing short of magical. Colorful, hilarious, quirky, and romantic-- this film will always holds a special place in my heart.

Inna Hanson Profile picture for Inna Hanson

With the same sort of cinematic nostalgia as “La La Land” and “In the Mood for Love,” and a touch of Wes Anderson-style whimsy, “Amelie” is a thoroughly enjoyable watch.

What are critics saying?


Washington Post by Desson Thomson

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


New York Post by Lou Lumenick

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.


Miami Herald by Rene Rodriguez

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.


Chicago Reader by Ronnie Scheib

The ease with which the perky, big-eyed heroine ingeniously succeeds in improving the lot of everyone around her and the painterly manner in which reality in every inch of the frame is "improved" constitute both the "quirky" charm and the pure fishiness of the film.


Film Threat by Ross Williams

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.
