Review: Amélie (2001)

Ah…the experience of zoning out and staring out the window of the subway train…

Ever get recommended a piece of media and it takes you years to get around to it? That was the case with this movie. It was recommended to me about three years ago and I got around to watching it on Christmas Day.

This is the weirdest romcom I’ve ever seen. Not that I’ve seen many but this is definitely the weirdest one I’ve seen. Weird in a good way. The main character is adorable and the way the movie moves through scenes is really quite fun. I also really like the colour grading in this movie. Everything has this yellowish tint to it which adds a warm vibe to the movie.

The vibes are truly immaculate in this movie.

This will probably be the last movie I watch this year and I’m glad to be ending the year with it.
