My absolute favorite movie of all time inspires me to go to Paris... visit it, get the feel of it, live there, etc. It's Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amélie Poulain by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. It's also known as Amélie in the States if I'm not mistaken. Anyways, the photography is spectacular! One of the most visually pleasing shots is of Amélie throwing stones on the Canal St-Martin. Simply gorgeous! Also, the scene where little Amélie's mom, Amandine, throws her goldfish into the river (along with its bowl). Beautiful. Send me there!
buy the soundtrack. it'll console you until you get a chance to go! i also love this movie especially the closing scene when they fly through paris on the moped!
I adore the music! It can get you through most of the different moods we can face, I find. Plus some of the songs like "Soir de Fete" are from Gotan Project, which leads into Buddha Bar style music, which I'm really getting into. What a wonderful movie! I think I'll go watch it right now!
have you seen "jeux d'enfants" ("love me if you dare")? it's supposed to be kinda like amelie but darker. it's premiering here in about 3 weeks i think ill go see it and pine away for paris.
I heard about that one. I wasn't sure if it was from France or Quebec. I totally wanted to see it and now I think I will!
