Amelie grew up in an emotionally isolated way, leading to her adult self living slightly outside of reality. She discovers that she has the power to influence the lives of others by subtle manipulation. Amelie, therefore, goes about trying to fix people’s lives – her lonely father, the local fruit vendor, her workmates. Some of her plans succeed, but some do not.

Amelie’s neighbours encourage her to take risks in her own life, to be brave enough to follow her heart and find her own happiness. She is drawn to Nino, some-one who seems to be living along that same fine line of reality. But she can only contact him through a treasure-hunt style game. Will Nino play the game and pursue Amelie? Will she ever be able to find love?

This is a classic, loveable French rom com where there is nothing not to like. I re-watched it recently and it was just as good second time round – overly refreshing and delightful, moving at a steady pace with an interesting array of characters.
