“Amelie has no boyfriend. She’s tried once or twice, but the results were a let down. Instead, she cultivates a taste for small pleasures: dipping her hand into sacks of grain, cracking creme brulee with a teaspoon, and skipping stones at St. Martin’s canal.” —Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Le Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain
"Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route." - Amelie Poulain ('Amelie') ( [whispering in theater] I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never watch the road in old American movies.)
Add these 40 movies to your pre-40 bucket lists. From comedies and hilarious heroine's to cautionary tales and rebels, these characters are an inspiration. The Breakfast Club, Amelie, Breakfast at Tiffany's...the list goes on.
