After a horrific stint in Hollywood, French filmmaker Jean Pierre Jeunet returned to Paris to get back to what he did best. For his next project, he tapped up-and-coming international actress Audrey Tautou to play his most fascinating character yet, an innocent young woman with a deep imagination and a newfound love of meddling in the lives of her friends and neighbors. What transpired was an international hit that cemented the status of both the actress and the filmmaker. But does Amelie still hold up as a dream or should it burst into a puddle of obscurity? Eric, Kent & Lobster head to Paris and find out for themselves.
