"Amélie" is a fanciful comedy about a young woman whose purpose in life is to orchestrate the lives of people around her in order to fix up their troubles. This leads her to invent all sorts of ideas to intervene people’s existence and to create a world of her own making. Her mission is rudely interrupted when she meets a strange, off-beat young man, Nino Quincampoix. Although fascinated by him, she plays hide-and-seek games, afraid of really opening up to this appealing young man.
