Amélie is a great French film from 2001. It is about a Parisian waitress who decides to do good for others. You see many of the Paris sites and you too can walk where Amélie walked.

If you watch a French film you get to hear the language, you can enjoy the story, and get to know something about French culture. You may also pick up some vocabulary. The French title is “Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain. So now you know two extra words unless you are used to talking about fabulous destinies.

You may also remember some of the citations. Vous au moins vous ne risquez pas d’être un légume puisque même un artichaut a du cœur! At the Sacré Cœur the boy says “Monsieur, quand le doigt montre le ciel, l’imbécile regarde le doigt.” This reminds me of the quote from Waiting for Godot "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”

A bientôt
