I had heard superlative comments on this film and it does not disappoint.
Paris is the backdrop and what a Paris, A Paris of La Boheme and the Merry Widow. Audrey is brilliant in the role of Amelie, projecting a true joie de vivre.

I gave it a 10 out of 10 for something so completely out of the ordinary and so very unhollywood.
