I don't know how many people have told me that I would LOVE the movie Amelie but there have been quite a few. The truth is, I have wanted to watch it for a really long time but I just hadn't had the opportunity. For some reason, tonight I told my brother that we should watch it and so we did.

Sometimes, when people tell me that I will love a movie, I'm not sure what they meant after I watch it but this time... oh my goodness. I haven't seen a movie that I identify with so much in a long time. Everyone was right, I loved it.

Enchantment with solitude, playful self-confidence, sweet independence, ridiculous imagination, pleasure in odd details, delight in helping others, fear of accepting what you give generously, peculiar bright colors, and French (I've been flirting with that language for years)... I loved it.

Great movie. You inspired me to watch it again. Unfortunately I don't speak French, but I still very much enjoy it.
