Highland City Club Film Series: Amelie

  • Highland city club 885 Highland Avenue Boulder, CO, 80302 United States (map)


Amélie is a fanciful comedy about a young woman who discretely orchestrates
the lives of the people around her, creating a world exclusively of her own
making. Shot in over 80 Parisian locations, acclaimed director Jean-Pierre
Jeunet invokes his incomparable visionary style to capture the exquisite charm and mystery of modern-day Paris through the eyes of a beautiful ingénue, played by the radiant Audry Toutou.

Curator’s Commentary:

Amelie is “out of the box” - utilizing the full tool box of cinema – with extraordinary
lighting, camerawork, editing and music – to bring a unique story to life, tracing
the experience of a young, beautiful woman who touches everyone around her in
a magical way which ultimately leads her to find her one true love. This is
visionary, breathless filmmaking.
