Now, in terms of inspiration, it's really easy for me to say that this film is just inspiration. The way each shot looks and the way the music sounds is just an instant shot of inspiration for me. I also love and identify with Amelie on a personal level. The way she acts with Nino is scarily similar to how I act, although I'm sure that most women and men can attest to acting similarly. Amelie as a character sort of inspired me to be a better person. Because of Amelie, I'm a lot more considerate and polite to people than I used to be when I was in middle school. Thankfully, this movie came along and made me a decent human hahaha oh man, and then there's the whole atmosphere of Amelie's apartment. It's doused in reds and greens and sprinkles of mustard yellow and that colour scheme alone is just so perfectly warm and spicy, if that makes sense. The whole film just makes me feel so optimistic about life and I love it so much for that.
