Thomas has done such a fine job on this movie I will simply refer you to one of my top five favourites of all time on Deus Lo Vult.
…So, if you’re someone who is easily swayed by a wanna-be reviewer, then hopefully I’ve done enough of a job to make you go out and see this fine film. Then again, if you hate people who think they can review a film and pass it off as good, and want to try and see how wrong I truly am, here’s the answer: go and see the film. Either way, it’s a win-win situation: you get to see the film, and when you come back saying just how good Amelie really is, I win. And even if you don’t like the premise of the film, or romantic plots and themes, at least you will have been exposed to a masterfully created technical film, and it would be hard to not appreciate, or even acknowledge, this. Although I do find it difficult to believe that someone could possibly find this movie bad at all.
