lady di! lady di! renoir!

Last night I watched one of my favorite movies of all time for like the millionth time. Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, or simply Amélie, stars Audrey Tatou as the main character and Matheiu Kassovitz as the object of her affection, Nino Quincompoix [he looks adorable in the movie by the way]. I watched it without subtitles because I didn't want anything to detract from the wonderful totalement francais mood [and to brush up on my French]. I love this movie because of its incredible feel-good ending and the amazing scenes of la vie parisienne. While watching it last night, I realized that a lot of the movie's feel came from how Amélie dressed. Below are some stills from the film. The places in this movie really make me want to move to Montmartre someday.

Sans toi, les émotions d'aujourd'hui ne seraient que la peau morte des émotions d'autrefois.
