i think what makes the movie so visually stimulating (and makes me want to throw out everything we own - save the big orange chair - and start over) is the embrace of beautiful, rich color with a shock of bright. amelie's home, neighborhood, cafe - all feel like they were dipped in tea and left to dry and then set next to a darling lamp. the combination of gold, red and orange paired with a burst of green or blue is pretty much brilliant. like erin and i have been saying, a dance of vintage with modern bits.
here are some amelie inspired looks:
