The story of Amélie plays out as a modern day fairy-tale, with elements of magical realism. The year of its release, Amélie took home several top movie honors, including four César awards (the French equivalent of the Oscars). The soundtrack for this movie was composed by Yann Tiersen.
In one of the movie’s more famous sequences, Amélie leads a blind man through a crowded marketplace, describing the sights and sounds all around them. Amélie incorporates stunning camera work and non-traditional narrative techniques and a great cast of actors bring to life a
warm and funny script.
