The eponymous heroine of this sweetly whimsical 2001 comedy by Jean-Pierre Jeunet wont take no for an answer. Discovering a cookie tin treasure trove in her Paris apartment, Amélie (the Audrey Hepburn-like Audrey Tautou) first sets out to reunite the precious boyhood tokens with their (now) aged owner, then stumbles upon an entire secret city of hidden connections and amorous links. From there, impulsively deciding to act as an agent of destiny, she sets about solving mysteries, setting up lovers, and transforming Paris with spontaneous acts of kindness. If Amélie is about anything, its about the overlooked, invisible bonds between us distracted, harried urban dwellers. Amélie reminds us that were neighbors. (R) BRIAN MILLER.
