A story of 2 sidesBy CC from England , 21 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I have watched this film multiple times, and for the simple reason - I loved it. I'm no great film goer, but this one really had me wanting to watch it again. Its the tale of a naive, twisted young lady, played by Amelies Audrey Tautou, and the love of her life, her married lover, Dr le Garrec, played by the gorgeous Samuel Le Bihan. The story is told in two halves, the first being her side of the story, of her love affair with the doctor. And after the twist in the middle we see the second half of the story, this being the reality of the story, the doctors side. I wont give away too much but in the end you will see that she has had her head in the clouds all along, leaving a trail of devastation for the doctor in his life.
Its such a sweet film in the first half, but twisted and quite sad in the last half.
Audrey Tautou plays the Amelie type character again, and well, and has you believing her happy loved up life until the last half.
A sweet, happy yet weird and sad film well worth watching if just to make up your own mind.

brilliant movieBy a customer , 26 Jun 2013one of her best films yet. good tongue in cheek twist at the end. very well made and excellent use of flashbacks
Psychological filmBy a customer , 25 Apr 2013Film worth watching definitely. It is a story of a stalker and a staked person life. A stalker can see the world a 'little bit' different, And because of this twisted perception others life becomes a misery. Psychological film, thought provoking.
Clever, very clever.By Spectator (52 reviews) , 04 Apr 2013The defining characteristic of this film is its cleverness. As with such films it is best that you discover its cleverness for yourself. So, if you are thinking of watching this, be careful which reviews you read otherwise one of the best reason for watching it will be lost. The plot does strain credibility a little. The acting is good from the whole cast, Audrey Tatou (who I would be happy to watch painting walls) makes her character believable. I can watch my favourite films many times over and so i was surprised that this, my second watching, was nowhere near as enjoyable as the first. Perhaps it relies on its cleverness a little too much. As to the 'Did my wife manage to say awake throughout' test, well it passed easily. Moreover, she enjoyed it just as much as the first watching and usually a second watching is guaranteed to send her to sleep! So, it gets a full extra star, though I am not sure it deserves it.
Don't let the cheesy start put you offBy Wonderwoolhelen (11 reviews) from Banbury, Oxon , 31 Jan 2013Soo cheesy at the very start, but it doesn't stay like this for long. I enjoyed the contrast between how the film starts and how it ends.
Audrey at her least predictable.By a customer , 25 Jan 2013Well worth watching. Another take on a love story with a great twist to the tale. Beautiful shot and very, very French.
