Amélie (Audrey Tautou) hat ihre eigene fabelhafte Welt. Sie liebt die kleinen Dinge, die leisen Töne und die zarten Gesten. Sie hat ein Auge für Details, die jedem anderen entgehen und einen Blick für magische Momente, die flüchtiger sind als ein Wimpernschlag. Amlie hat den Kopf über den Wolken, und steht dennoch mit beiden Beinen auf der Erde. Ihr kleines Universum ist bevölkert von suizidgefährdeten Goldfischen, gescheiterten Genies, sehnsuchtskranken Hypochondern und anderen skurrilen Gestalten. Als sie eines Tages beschließt, als gute Fee in das Leben ihrer Mitmenschen zu treten, weiß sie genau, was sie zu tun hat: Sie schickt einen Gartenzwerg auf Weltreise, zaubert jahrzehntelang verschollene Liebesbriefe wieder herbei und wird zum Schutz- und Racheengel in einer Person. Nur wenn es um ihr eigenes Glück geht, steht Amélie sich selbst im Weg. Und als sie sich in den schüchternen Nico (Mathieu Kassovitz) verliebt, weiß sie sich kaum noch einen Rat - bis ihr ein guter Geist auf die Sprünge hilft

Die fabelhafte Welt der Amélie ( file )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in German and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Nach seinem Ausflug in die amerikanische Science-Fiction (Alien - Die Wiedergeburt) kehrt der französische Regisseur und Autor Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Delicatessen, Die Stadt der verlorenen Kinder) in seine eigenen Fantasiewelten zurück und legt mit Die Fabelhafte Welt der Amelie ein hinreißend poetisches Großstadt-Märchen vor. Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) ist eine schüchterne junge Frau. Sie mag ganz besonders flache Steine übers Wasser hüpfen zu sehen und mit einem Löffel die Kruste von Creme brulee zu knacken. Eines Tages findet sie in ihrer Pariser Wohnung eine Schachtel, die ein kleiner Junge vor vielen Jahren dort versteckt haben muß. Sie macht den Mann ausfindig und läßt ihm die Schachtel anonym zukommen, was den Mann zu Tränen rührt und, wie Amelie später erfährt total glücklich gemacht hat. Nun beschließt sie ihren Mitmenschen ein Engel zu sein, der ihnen Glück bringt. Damit wird sie für den gemeinen Ladenbesitzer aus ihrem Haus zum Racheengel, andere aber, verkuppelt sie und verhilft ihnen zu neuem Lebensmut. Als Amelie die Liebe über den Weg läuft, weiß sie sie allerdings nicht zu halten. Aus der Ferne kommuniziert sie mit dem komisch-verrückten Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz), doch als er sie findet, ist aller Mut dahin. Seit Beginn der Filmgeschichte versuchen Regisseure die Welt zu verändern. Jean-Pierre Jeunet hat es mit "Amelie" geschafft. In Frankreich hat der Film einen wahren Boom der guten Taten ausgelöst.
