Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain This is the film that convinced me I wanted to be a cinematographer. I've always had an interest in camera work and operation and certainly an appreciation for lighting and shot composition, but this film showed me what is truly possible with cinematography. I fell in love with this film instantaneously (not to mention the marvelous Audrey Tautou) and was entranced with its vibrance, perspective, and energy; in fact, I assume I probably looked quite like Amélie in the shot above.
And Yann Tiersen's score is absolutely wonderful. A particular favorite: Comptine D'Un Autre L'Apres Midi
