Gorgeous Amelie-inspired photographs by Cecilia Austin.

Has anyone seen Micmacs, the new French flick from the director of Amelie? I had a chance to see it a couple of days ago, and it's SO good! I don't know how to describe it, but it's kind of like Amelie meets Oceans Eleven.

Oh Oh Oh! Amelie! Those photos are just great. You know, what I really love is that so many different people like Amelie. Its brings people together, i think she would like that.

Those photos are gorgeous, I love Amélie. Actually, I love all Jean-Pierre Jeunet's films (I don't know if it's because I'm French...). I have not seen "Micmacs" yet, but I highly recommend you to see his first film "Delicatessen", which is so great! And of course, "A very long engagement", if you haven't seen it already. I love the atmosphere of his films, I always have such a good time watching them :)

Amelie must be one of my favourite films ever! I was going to go see Micmacs, but I didn't want to be disappointed - the review of it I read wasn't too great, but now I'll have to check it out.
And I second Delicatessen!
