This soundtrack plays a beautiful tightrope that upholds the Amélie movie, yet a listener can walk along and feel beautiful balance in the Parisian melodies by sound alone. Highly recommended.

While the film of the fabulous Jean-Pierre Jeunet brings you into a world of cross-processing color all throughout, it is not but the music that complements and indeed makes up at least half of the charm this movie has. Yann Tiersen is the author of the music in its entirety,basing most of the melodies on accordions, brass percussions and strings for the ultimate French-sounding soundtrack. Although by some it may fall into more of a cliche' style than a work of simple yet dimensional soundtrack a' la francaise, Tiersen accomplishes to recapture the film's romance and beloved characters in a way that it makes you want to hold off on watching the movieonce more for fear of spoiling that feel-good. The romance of Amelie a Poulin and Nino Quincampoix sparkles all throughtout this post-2000's cinematographic emerald jewel.

Well, if you have seen the movie than you know how great the music is. If not you should definitely see the movie and then get the music. Its just beautiful stuff.

Although I'm not really into music, nor am I particularily romantic, this is my favourite soundtrack of all-time. Very good movie, even better soundtrack. The mood that this disc evokes can be interpreted as hauntingly beautiful.

A lovely soundtrack for a lovely film. This is good background music that lets you escape to someplace else all together.

If you love French music - the kind of music that reminds you of Paris - this album is for you. Lovely to listen to at the office.
