Amelie

March 22nd, 2011 | Rachel

Since this blog is in its infancy and I am trying to figure out what to write about and how to do it, I am going to do several short entries on French things that I love.  The first that comes to mind is my all-time favorite movie, Amelie.
Although most of the movie was filmed in Paris, Amelia’s father’s house was located in Eaubonne, which is about half an hour outside Paris.

 

What other French movies should I watch?  Someone recently recommended L’heure d’été (a/k/a Summer Hours).

 

Amelie has a strange feeling of absolute harmony. It’s a perfect moment. A soft light, a scent in the air, the quiet murmur of the city. A surge of love, an urge to help mankind overcomes her.
