Quotes from the Movie Amelie

It's better to help people than to be like a gnome in the garden.

AmÈlie Poulain

I had two heart attacks, an abortion, did crack... while I was pregnant. Other than that, I'm fine.

AmÈlie Poulain

I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never look at the road in old movies.

AmÈlie Poulain

At least you'll never be a vegetable ó even artichokes have hearts.

"I'm nobody's little weasel"

AmÈlie Poulain

Sans toi, les Èmotions d'aujourd'hui ne seraient que la peau morte des Èmotions d'autrefois.

Hipolito

Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue ‡ ne jamais dÈpasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable rÈpÈtition d'une reprÈsentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.]

In the apartment downstairs from AmÈlie lives Raymond Dufayel; they call him "The Glass Man." He was born with bones as brittle as crystal. All his furniture is padded. A handshake could crush his fingers. He's stayed inside for twenty years. Time has changed nothing

Narrator

Nino is late. Amelie can only see two explanations. 1 - he didn't get the photo. 2 - before he could assemble it, a gang of bank robbers took him hostage. The cops gave chase. They got away... but he caused a crash. When he came to, he'd lost his memory. An ex-con picked him up, mistook him for a fugitive, and shipped him to Istanbul. There he met some Afghan raiders who took him to steal some Russian warheads. But their truck hit a mine in Tajikistan. He survived, took to the hills, and became a Mujaheddin. [Increasingly angry] Amelie refuses to get upset for a guy who'll eat borscht all his life in a hat like a tea cozy.

Narrator

Times are hard for dreamers.
