“Amélie” is whimsical, heartwarming, hilarious, and one of our most favorite movies about life in Paris. This romantic comedy (called “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain” in French, but simply called “Amélie” in English) takes place primarily in Montmartre, as a young woman named Amélie Poulain decides to start living more adventurously. She begins secretly trying to improve the lives of the people around her. Whether it’s standing up to bullies, becoming good friends with her neighbor, or trying to reunite lost loves, Amélie and her quirky way of doing things will make you smile. This is a French film about friendships, romance, magic, and the pursuit of a more interesting life, and it is beloved by people around the world; it was even nominated for five Academy Awards. We hope you add it to your Netflix queue for your next movie night! Below we are sharing a few of our favorite quotes from the movie.

Life’s funny. To a kid, time always drags. Suddenly you’re fifty. All that’s left of your childhood… fits in a rusty little box.

Luck is like the Tour de France. You wait, and it flashes past you. You have to catch it while you can.
