This week's post is one that I have been excited about for a while now. Amelie is both a delightful and charming film that became an instant favorite of mine after I saw it for the first time a few years ago. Red and green are the two colors that really stick out throughout the entire film, as you can see those two colors are almost always included in each scene in some way, shape, or form. In fact, the appearance of the film seems to have either been shot through a green lens or given that greenish tint during editing. Not only am I a fan of the colors in this film, but I also have a deep love for the story, the character of Amelie and the actress who plays her. Audrey Tautou breathes life and delight into Amelie, essentially carrying the entire film on her shoulders, thus the film would not be as wonderful without her presence. I must say that I had some difficulty capturing stills from Amelie because each scene and frame of the film is perfect and unique, and I also had trouble capturing stills that did not include the beautiful Audrey Tautou, as I was tempted to have her in each still.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the stills from Amelie below!
