I love this movie.

This quirky, crowd-pleasing romantic comedy is the highest-grossing French film of all-time. Amélie (Audrey Tautou) is a painfully shy waitress working at a tiny Paris cafe. One day, she makes a surprising discovery that changes her life. From then on, Amélie dedicates herself to helping others find happiness in the most delightfully unexpected ways. But will she have the courage to do for herself what she has done for others?

The movie is in French with English subtitles.
