I really love Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s films, even the missteps like Alien Resurrection are creative and interesting. Amélie is perhaps his most well know film and for good reason, it’s beautifully crafted brimming with humour, charisma and heart. Audrey Tautou is perfectly cast, her wide eyes and effortless charm made it easy for me to be swept along with a smile and to not mind when it gets a little too sentimental.
The ‘Red Bed Style’ poster is unique to Japan and can be found in B1 and B2 size. The B1 is single sided and printed on a thicker than normal stock. Reprints are common, but are easy to spot as they’re 27 x 40″, on thin paper and the print quality is not great (the Eirin mark in the bottom right is very blurry for example). I think the design captures the atmosphere of the film nicely, the pictures and lamps around her bed make me grin.
