It is a tour de force of a bauble, if such a thing can exist.

It's not the deepest movie of the season, but it has sprightly performances and cinematic style to spare.

Jeunet has succeeded at drawing us inside his head; the question is, do we want to be there?

How far should we trust a plea for benevolence when it feels like a box of tricks?

Tautou is a remarkable young actress. Her wide-eyed, gamine look, reminiscent of a young Audrey Hepburn or Leslie Caron, gives Amelie an innocence and vulnerability that is so essential to make the story work.

Not only is it a fawning love letter to the City of Light where it was shot, but the film is based on the comforting premise that the big city is just a small town when folks get to know each other.

Amelie contains enough material for a dozen or so charming shorts, but stretched to feature length, the whimsy grows wearisome, and the film delights far less than it seems to desire.

This is as deliciously romantic and ingeniously mischievous as cinema gets.

Total Film

The rarest of cinematic rarities -- a schmaltz-free feelgooder which doesn't just make you feel good, but reminds you that true love can exist and that beauty can be found in even the most seemingly mundane of places.

Underlying the directorial derring-do is an enduring truth: Love really can conquer all.

Jeunet superbly uses the film's comedic aspects to illuminate the characters, and his occasional flights of fancy only enhance Amélie's magical aura.

Chris Kaltenbach
Baltimore Sun

For such a whimsical film to work, there needs to be something substantial at its center, some grounded character or central conflict. All Amelie has is the lightest, most insubstantial of souffles. And who can stomach an entire meal of that?

Like the leading character, Amelie is still an absolute delight.

It is a rare thing to have an illuminating experience whilst watching a film, but that is exactly what is encountered with Amelie.

What comes across most powerfully is Jeunet's athletic, playful directing style, a tour de force of tricks, gags and effects.

A magnificent movie -- made a masterpiece by Audrey Tautou.

The result is hip nostalgia, a postmodern fairy tale in which faith is replaced by predestination or simple luck, and the universe proves, against all odds, to be a place of kindness and abiding love.
