Overview

The soundtrack to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's charming, slightly surreal romantic comedy Amélie features music by Yann Tiersen. Just as the film presents an idyllic, idealized version of Paris, Tiersen's score captures the most romantic aspects of French music, complete with fluttering accordions, delicate harpsichords, mandolins, and poignant strings and pianos. Pieces like "J'y Suis Jamais Allé," "Le Moulin," "La Valse des Monstres," and "Les Jours Tristes" -- which features a toy piano -- convey the film's sweet, slightly skewed outlook perfectly, and are completely charming in their own right. Aside from the three variations on the heroine's theme, "La Valse d'Amélie," most of the score comes from Tiersen's other albums, making Amélie a fine introduction to his work as well as an appropriately winning soundtrack.

I have loved the music from this movie from the first time I watched the flick.  Totally perfect for the film, and wonderful on its own.  This music is haunting and reflective, beautiful and completely perfect at evoking France as all romantics view it in their mind's eye.

The soundtrack to Amélie (mostly composed by Yann Tiersen) is as quirky as the French-made movie. It's just as charming and sometimes nearly as strange. The use of a toy piano and an accordion make the music enjoyable and interesting. A change for any soundtrack listener, Amélie is delightful!

I love this kind of ambient, soulful French music! You can pretend you're actually walking the sidewalks of Paris, passing the cafés and pâtisseries. On the whole, it was a great album.

If you have half-a-heart, you will be touched by the sweetness that is Amelie. The movie was beautifully made, and the music is so wonderful it will make you cry. It is nice to lose oneself in the reverie created by Amelie.

The movies is great and the music shares in it's splendor. There is so much feeling in every note and it just rushes and overwhelms the senses. It is if your living some magnificent painting, dreamlike.

I really loved the movie and the soundtrack went perfectly with the movie but I wish some of the tracks were longer! Some of them are only 2 minutes and that's cutting such a beautiful song short!
