Original title: Le fabuleux destin d’Amelie Poulain. Also called Amelie, this is a movie about a girl who was raised believing that she had a heart defect. You might not think of this as a romance movie but the way she lives her life is just plain romantic. As a child her father’s concern for her health prevented her from being around other people so she creates a fantasy world to entertain herself. When she finds out that she can live her life and moves to Paris, her life becomes that fantasy world that she lived in as a child with a devotion to those who live around her. It is not they typical boy meets girl, girl loves boy that you often see in top romance movies, but this is a movie that will challenge your ideas and thoughts of romance.
