Outdoor Movie: Amelie

Outdoor Movie: Amelie Reflection Pool Lawn

Amélie (Audrey Tatou), the heroine of Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s award-winning whimsical romance, is no ordinary young woman. A waitress in a Montmartre, Paris bar, Amélie observes people and lets her imagination roam free. One day, she suddenly finds her purpose in life: to solve other people’s problems. Follow her around Paris as she engineers offbeat solutions to better the lives of her deserving co-workers, relatives, and neighbors, including the concierge who spends her day sipping port while communing with a stuffed dog; Georgette, the hypochondriac newsdealer; and the “glass man,” who lives vicariously through a Renoir reproduction. Amélie’s mission to help others is rudely interrupted when she meets a strange, off-beat young man, Nino Quincampoix (Mathieu Kassovitz), who captures her interest, and sets her on a mission to do accomplish something for herself, in the most charming and complicated way possible.
