The Fabulous Destiny.


This weekend was a bit dull for me. Aydan is with her family and yes I was literally alone and I just don't know when will I be seeing her again. I'm still trying to figure out whether is being alone a good thing to practice or not. You see I have been on my own for a long, long time. My life has been really like a roller coaster, it went up and down and around. *To those who thought they know me but they actually DO NOT, save your stupid remarks and go fuck yourself*

Anyway not wanting to start a curse-entry, I will continue my initial idea for this entry. *I just woke up and my mood is swinging like a cradle of filth*

Okay, deep breath. Deep breath.

I'm good now.

Where were we? Ahh, now I remember.

So yeah yesterday while I was alone at home (as always), I felt like watching a film. But whenever I watch a film at home I will consider many things such as what time it is (morning, afternoon, evening or night), my mood at that time (happy, sad, enlighten etc), and most importantly who I'm going to watch the movie with. You see this is VERY IMPORTANT because you don't want to have your co-watcher to make stupid boring faces or keep asking stupid questions and makes you feel like you want to slap him/her in the face so fast like a moving train.

So after considering my guidelines (minus the co-watcher as I was alone), I decided to watch a french film called Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain (English: The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain). French? What's so good about them?

I was actually being introduced to this film by Aydan about a month or so ago. I watched them in her MacBook but I had to stop after about 15 minutes because I had to catch another important thing that time. And coincidentally my housemate, Ami brought the DVD home last week. How cool is that?!

I decided to watch this film because 1) I know from few reliable people and by heart that this film is awesome 2) Aydan loves the movie so much 3) I miss her so bad and I know she'll be more than happy if she knows that I've watched it.

And watch I did.

I am suppose to review this film but I just don't know where and how to start. Just start then, goddamnit! Okay. This film is so well directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and the main character that shaped the film so beautiful is Audrey Tautou as Amélie Poulain. (Audrey played as Sophie Neveu in the 2006's The Da Vinci Code)

Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain or Amélie, is a movie about Amélie, an innocent and naive girl in Paris, with her own sense of justice, decides to help those around her and along the way, discovers love.

I don't really know how to review this. Seriously. What I can say is, that, this movie is so good and every details in it (storyline, plots, characters, props, cinematography, scripts etc I don't know what else I'm not a film maker!) are really strong and 120-whimsical-minutes passed by like a blink of an eye. The colour of the movie is so vibrant and bright almost constantly, everything from her father's gnome to the fruits at a marché looks alive. It's almost like a fairy tale but no fairy was found though. (Ahh, come on, we all love fairy tales, don't we?)

Through the movie, I discovered many things but most significantly one thing. Little things in life. Life is too short not to do things that makes you happy. It's lame I know, but until you try it, you'll never know. This is a perfect lighthearted movie. Thank you to my beautiful beloved Aydan.

Smile is the second best thing you can do with your lips

My rate for this film: 9.5/10!

Dem yuh!

Trust me, it's more than just seeing 'little miracles'. But you have to really let yourself go or loosen up when you watch this. Sadly I don't understand French as I don't think the translations can justify the idea of it.

My housemate brought the DVD back and he got it from someone too. Long track. Good luck finding one.
