Top Movies of the Decade #36

36. Amelie

Nino is late.  Amelie can only see two explanations.

1. He didn’t get the message.

2. Before he could decipher it, a gang of bank robbers took him hostage.  The cops gave chase.  They got away…but he caused a crash.  When he came to, he’s lost his memory.  An ex-con picked him up, mistook him for a fugitive, and shipped him to Istanbul.  There he met some Afghan raiders who took him to steal some Russian warheads.  But their truck hit a mine in Tajkistan.  He survived, took to the hills and became a mujahedeen.

Amelie refuses to get upset for a guy who’ll eat borscht his whole life in a hat like a tea cozy.

You either adore this kind of cute whimsey or it drives you crazy.   Personally, I love it.  And this movie.
