Amélie (2001) Poster


Audrey Tautou: Amélie Poulain



  • Amélie Poulain : At least you'll never be a vegetable - even artichokes have hearts.

  • Amélie : [whispering in cinema]  I like to look for things no one else catches.

    [film on the cinema screen: as a man and a woman are about to kiss, a fly walks across a windowpane in the background] 

    Amélie : I hate the way drivers never look at the road in old American movies.

    [film on the cinema screen: the driver of a car turns towards his passenger and talks at length to her, totally ignoring the road ahead] 

  • Narrator : Amélie still seeks solitude. She amuses herself with silly questions about the world below, such as "How many people are having an orgasm right now?"

    [scenes of various orgasms taking place] 

    Amélie : Fifteen.

  • Amélie : [to her father, who is not paying attention]  I had two heart attacks, an abortion, did crack... while I was pregnant. Other than that, I'm fine.

  • Amélie : [to blind man]  Let me help you. Step down. Here we go! The drum major's widow! She's worn his coat since the day he died. The horse's head has lost an ear! That's the florist laughing. He has crinkly eyes. In the bakery window, lollipops. Smell that! They're giving out melon slices! Sugarplum, ice cream! We're passing the park butcher. Ham, 79 francs. Spareribs, 45! Now the cheese shop. Picadors are 12.90. Cabecaus 23.50. A baby's watching a dog that's watching the chickens. Now we're at the kiosk by the metro. I'll leave you here. Bye!

  • Amélie : I am nobody's little weasel.

  • Amélie Poulain : She doesn't relate to other people. She was always a lonely child.

  • Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man : So that's the one, there, the guy who raises his hand?

    Amélie : Yes.

    Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man : Is she in love with him?

    Amélie : Yes.

    Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man : The time has come for her to take some real risks.

    Amélie : Well yes, she's thinking about it. She's thinking of a stratagem.

    Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man : Yes, she likes stratagems, doesn't she?

    Amélie : Yes.

    Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man : She's a bit of a coward. That's why I have trouble with her eyes.

  • Amélie : It's better to help people than garden gnomes.

  • Amélie : I am nobody's little weasel

  • Amélie : I'm busy
