Good Points
Original and interesting style, well-acted, deeply moving.

Bad Points
Longer than necessary, lacklustre ending.

General Comments
While being on the surface a light-hearted and charming film, Amelie will also evoke very powerful emotions for anybody who has ever found themselves socially isolated within society. There are only a few things wrong with this otherwise remarkable film - firstly, its lengthy duration, which is the result of poor editing - there are too many story threads that are extraneous to the overall plot. Secondly, the build up to the finale leaves the audience expecting some sort of coup de grace, but sticking to its light-hearted comedic roots, the film instead opts for an ending which seems to be a bit of a cop-out.

That said, the film overall is excellent, and without the cop-out ending could easily have been one of the best films of all-time. Definitely recommended viewing.
