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.
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.
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?
