Amélie is looking for love, and perhaps for the meaning of life in general. We see her grow up in an original if slightly dysfunctional family. Now a waitress in central Paris, she interacts curiously with her neighbors and customers, as well as a mysterious Photomaton-image collector and one of his even more mysterious photo subjects. Little by little, Amélie realizes that the way to happiness (and yet more subtle humor) requires her to take her own initiative and reach out to others. Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 122min, 2001, France

th-2In a surrealistic and bizarre society, children have been abducted by a mad and evil scientist, Krank, who wants to steal their dreams and stop and reverse his accelerated aging process. When the gang of Cyclops kidnap Denree , the little brother of the former whale hunter One, he is helped by the young street orphan girl Miette, who steals for the Siamese Pieuvre, to reach the platform where Krank leaves with his cloned dwarf wife Mademoiselle Bismuth, his six cloned sons and a brain, and rescue the children. Directed byMarc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 112min., 1995, France, Germany,  Spain
