Amelie (Dir: Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001).

Café des Deux Moulins, 15 Rue Lepic, Rue Cauchois, Montmartre, Paris, France

This is a great film and Paris is a unique place to visit, especially the film’s director’s manor, Montmartre, so I was very disappointed to hear that most of the internal locations were shot in a German studio. The externals are all real though, and you can go to the Café des Deux Moulins where Amelie works and have a cognac and a crème brulee , it just doesn’t look how you want it to look. The metro station Amelie escorts the blind man from is Lamarch-Caulaincourt, you’ll know it for the double flights of staris, and the carousel from where Ameile leaves a trail for Nino is located at Place St. Pierre near the Basilica of Sacre-Cour. To help you get into the feel of things bring your orange tinted lenses and positive attitude.

I am looking for 2 asian girls who was sitting beside me in Amelie's café on 12.03.2011. at 21:00.

Does anyone have any idea how and where should I search them? They are also Amelie fans as I am, they did photos as well just like I do and I would need to talk to them.

Thanks for any ideas!

How can you tell it's the same one? There must be lots that look like that..?

Well, it was nice seeing it and it's surroundings like metro station Abbesses but indeed NOT quite like the movie... it's a Brasserie as well now. I still love Montmarte and the movie though ;-)

Me too! I took loads of photos!

It was quite funny watching everybody come in and say "its not like in the movie"! Did you see the gnome photos behind the bar?

Garden gnomes are fun. I wonder though where on Earth the one used in the movie is. :-)

I'd love to know! I hope someone kept it from the set - it's the kind of thing that would make millions in a charity auction! Anyone know?

I am going to see it today! Don't have high hopes so I won't be disappointed ;-)

Let us know what you think...

Not quite like the movie...

If you can get in between the japanese tourists taking photos, this is worth a visit. However dont expect it to look exactly like it did in the movie, its been repainted and slightly remodelled!
