Go ahead, watch Amélie and try not to fall head over heels for star Audrey Tautou. The button-cute and endlessly appealing actress plays the film's title character, a woman who has overcome a dark childhood to voluntarily, and unconditionally, spread happiness to everyone in sight, a smile-inducing mission inspired by the death of Princess Diana.
Director/co-writer Jean-Pierre Jeunet approaches the romantic comedy genre with a wonderful innocence, avoiding any hints of sexual under- or overtones and simply allowing Tautou to delight with her magnetic smile, natural sweetness, and knack for making good-naturedness desirable.
