samskivert: Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain (3)

03 July 2001

Brazil meets Ally McBeal (or meets Gabriel García Márquez if we’re tracing memes back to their source). Despite the fact that they blatantly stole the idea of those clever cats that took an unsuspecting couples’ lawn gnome on a tour of the world, the film and Amélie are the dictionary definition of perfectly delightful. The French can be so quirky.
