Everybody, welcome to Episode 66 of the “Reel Chat Podcast” – a podcast that’s back and in full swing since it’s big return in October. Today we continue our brand new season – the one where we’re counting down Empire Magazine’s Top 100 Greatest Movies of all time.
Next up at number 98 is Reel Chat’s first look at a foreign language film – 2001’s quirky French romantic comedy “Amèlie” – the story of an innocent and naive girl in Paris with her own sense of justice, who decides to help those around her and, along the way, discovers love. “Amèlie” was critically and commercially adored at the start of this century, but has time been kind or cruel to it? Is it still the much-loved visual masterpiece it’s always been remembered for?
Joining your host Adam Stolfo is the returning Andrew McCaskill, Matt O’Neill and Penny Jelly. Join the team as they break down the film’s amazing cinematography, it’s cast, it’s filmmakers, it’s music, it’s commercial success, it’s quirkiness, as well as just how far removed from reality this fairy tale version of Paris really is!
So does “Amèlie” deserve it’s spot in the Top 100? And is position number 98 where it belongs?
