We gave it an A

The real delight amid Amélie‘s whimsy and feel-good sweetness is not just Tautou’s doe-eyed charm as a waify waitress who overcomes her solitude and happily meddles in the lives of others. It’s that along with the flights of fancy is a bit of the bittersweet — how easy it is to both fight against and be deeply attached to one’s own isolation.
