Sometimes I wish I could watch this movie for the first time again.  It really, truly changed my life. I watched it nine times in this little arthouse theater in Seattle.  I remember trudging through the puddles from the bus stop in my long brown plaid coat, buying my ticket from the little window and then walking on that silent, thick, burgundy carpet to my seat with such joy at the prospect of spending my afternoon in dreamy, Parisian bliss.  

WARNING: this little video is filled with spoilers so if you haven't seen it yet, please close this window, open up your movie-viewing-mode of choice and watch it.

And, by the way, one of the very best things in the whole world of knowing how to play the piano is being able to play all the songs from this soundtrack.


  1. this is one of my very favorite movies of all time! it's just lovely :) i once had a little girl named amelie in my preschool class and when i saw her name on the roster, i actually clapped!

  2. Ooooh! I would've done the same thing! I've thought about naming my daughter (if I had one) Amelie but it seems a little narcissistic! :o/


Thank you for leaving your musings! I appreciate each and every one.
