    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A charmer, a movie whose embrace of cinema is so passionate it could be mistaken for an embrace of life. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    Whether you're charmed or bored by the movie depends entirely on your feelings for Amelie, a young woman whose hyper-quirky personality both takes some getting used to and grows old fast. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    This is the Paris -- and the mad, beautiful young Parisienne -- we look for in dreams. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

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

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    At two hours, the movie is probably 15 minutes too long -- the final half-hour in particular could have used some trimming -- but complaining about having too much of a good thing makes one sound like a grouch. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    Delightful and original, the film conjures up a corner of Paris distinct and specific, yet fairy-tale fanciful. show more

    The barometer for whether you'll enjoy Amélie is whether you liked "Moulin Rouge" last summer. If snappy visuals, tangy colors, mood-drenched scenery, and a good-hearted heroine make you as happy as a box of Parisian chocolates, it's definitely for you. show more

    5-STARS DELIGHTFUL...ESPECIALLY THAT BOUDOIR SCENE AT THE END. THE SATISFACTION OF COMING TOGETHER COMPLETELY; IT SEEMS SO NATURAL, SO FRENCH, AND SO REAL. I HAVE WATCHED THIS MOVIE MANY TIMES TO PICK UP THE DELIGHTFUL SPIRIT AND THE YOUTHFUL INNOCENCE. THIS MOVIE IS A BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE.--MO
