AMELIE [2001]

She'll Change Your Life

On September 3rd 1973, at 6:28pm and 32 seconds, a bluebottle fly capable of 14,670 wing beats a minute landed on Rue St Vincent, Montmartre. 
At the same moment, on a restaurant terrace nearby, the wind magically made two glasses dance unseen on a tablecloth. 
Meanwhile, in a 5th-floor flat, 28 Avenue Trudaine, Paris 9, returning from his best friend's funeral, Eugène Colère erased his name from his address book. 
 At the same moment, a sperm with one X chromosome, belonging to Raphaël Poulain, made a dash for an egg in his wife Amandine. 
Nine months later, Amélie Poulain was born.

With a prompter in every cellar window whispering comebacks, 
shy people would have the last laugh.

It's better to help people than garden gnomes.

She doesn't relate to other people. She was always a lonely child.

Without you, today's emotions would be the scurf of yesterday's.
[Hipolito, the Writer]

We pass the time of day to forget how time passes.
[Hipolito, the Writer] 

Failed writer, failed life... I love the word 'fail.' Failure is human destiny.   
Failure teaches us that life is but a draft, a long rehearsal for a show that will never play.
[Hipolito, the Writer]

You mean she would rather imagine herself relating to an absent person 
than build relationships with those around her?
[Raymon Dufayel, the Glass Man]
