Amelie is one of my favorite films of all time. The storyline, the acting and cinematography are superb, but the soundtrack, the soundtrack by Yann Tiersen is what takes it over the top. The first time I watched the film, the very next thing I did was buy the soundtrack, and I’ve been listening to it ever since.
One of my favorite tracks is Comptine D’un Autre été L’après-midi. The song runs throughout the film and really feels like the soul of the whole album.
It is absolutely beautiful. So beautiful that it can bring you to tears. I listen to it almost everyday, usually early morning or late night. It either gives me a breather before a busy day, or calms me before falling asleep.
Yann Tiersen is a brilliant musician and this is one of his best works in my opinion… C’est magnifique!
