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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Amelie and Nino's love story bursts forth in a colorful fantasia. Their wild goose chase of romance soars as high as Bruno Delbonnel's absinthe-tinged camerawork. And their kiss makes for one of the Zeroes' most tender and quietly sensual.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet's fresh, funny, exquisitely bittersweet tour de force, about a lass who makes sly incursions into the lives of her neighbors, is ambitious yet intimate.

Jeunet hasn't lost his touch with fabulist imagery, but he employs it more selectively and effectively than ever before.
