Editor’s Pick #233: Movie Soundtracks-Amélie by Irina Dvalidze

Yann Tiersen scores Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain

Preview: Stream La Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Pulain Soundtrack on Youtube

It is hardly a mystery that contemporary French film scene has produced some of the most visually spectacular pieces to date. Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain or simply Amélie, as known to the US audience, remains to be one of top favorites as it nears the decade mark since its release date.

One thing that every good filmmaker knows is that a film is nothing without an appropriate sound. Amélie just happens to have one of the strongest and most emotionally charged soundtracks we have come across. Whether it is tapping into vintage french classics or employing an entirely original composition produced under Yann Tiersen‘s genius, every note is heartwarmingly touching. Each melody permanently cements itself in your mind with a shimmery jingle and bellowing accordion chords.

So your chore for the day? Go give it a listen and sink into harmonious relief. Frankly, while you are at it through an in-house Amélie screening while you eat chocolate fondue.
