Event Information

Still charming people almost twenty years since its initial release, Amélie is a fanciful comedy about a young woman (played with comic charm by Audrey Tatou) who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her, creating a world exclusively of her own making. 

Shot in over 80 Parisian locations, acclaimed director Jean-Pierre Jeunet invokes his incomparable visionary style to capture the exquisite charm and mystery of modern-day Paris through the eyes of a beautiful ingénue.

This BFI Comedy Genius screening of Amelie will be introduced by Birmingham comedian Jo Enright, a live stand-up and small screen star best known for her work on Trollied, Ideal, Life’s Too Short and I’m Alan Partridge.

Comedy Genius is a celebration of comedy on screen, led by BFI, the Independent Cinema Office and BFI Film Audience network, supported by funds from the National Lottery.
