Film at Noon: Amélie

Thursday, September 18

12:00 p.m.

The Frick Art Museum

Amélie delightfully tells the story of a shy young woman who relishes life’s small pleasures, transforming her own life as she quietly brings happiness to those around her. The French language film prominently features the Paris neighborhood on Montmarte, where Edgar Degas and other artists featured in the Degas exhibition lived and worked. Though set in modern-day France, the neighborhood retains many of the qualities seen in Degas’ time, allowing viewers to experience the streets, buildings, and cafés among which the relationships considered in the exhibition took shape.

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Art Direction. French with English subtitles. Rated R. 121 minutes. Free and open to the public.
