French Movie Night Part III: Le Fabuleux Destin d' Amélie Poulain
Growing up in a world as big as her own house, Amélie Poulain creates her own world of fantasy and imagination. During her job in a restaurant called 'Les Deux Moulins' she observates people and finds ways to increase their happiness.
By enjoying things other people wouldn't even notice, like putting her hands in sachets of grain or watching the faces of people sitting behind her in the cinema, she creates her own form of happiness as well.
Though, real prosperity, wisdom and succes are about to enter her life from the moment she finds a binder with photos on a streetcorner. Encouraged by a painter that unconsciously and figuratively paints the personality of Amélie, she is ready to enter a whole new world.
