Their hard-won connection (don't even try to imagine the complications) at last bathes Amelie in the kind of warmth and fellow-feeling Jeunet rarely indulged in his darker collaborations with Caro. In the end, the film is downright touching, but that in no way compromises the purity of Jeunet's vision, nor does it minimize the satisfying complexities of his narrative. Amelie is not a film for everyone, but if you're in the mood for a little sensory overload, some spirited intellectual gymnastics, and an introduction to the most intriguing new actress Europe has produced in years, get in line with the rest of the thrill-seekers.
