There is no denying that Amélie is, to paraphrase its title, fabulous.

A delicious pastry of a movie -- You see it, and later when you think about it, you smile.

Los Angeles Times

Features an aggressive, in-your-face romanticism that's noticeably lacking in genuine warmth. While its story of lonely misfits searching for love has appealing moments, more often it turns into an overbearing fable overburdened with fake joie de vivre.
