Am\xE9lie, aka Le Fabuleux destin d'Am\xE9lie Poulain
An excellent film directed/written by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant who were also involved in The City Of Lost Children and Delicatessen.
Am\xE9lie, who has lived most of her life in isolation comes across a box of bits and pieces hidden by a boy who lived in her house many years ago. She sets out to re-unite him with his lost treasures, and is inspired to begin a intricate series of intervations in the lives of people around her. Her aims? Happiness, justice, love.
Well worth seeing - I'd definitely see it again.
