French Film Under The Stars

The New Zealand Film Archive and the French Embassy are pleased to announce the starlight screening of Amélie (Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain) at favourite Wellington venue - The Dell.

The Film Archive have been responsible for screening many classic Kiwi films during previous Summer Cities but this year are thrilled to join with the embassy in presenting one of France’s more recent screen gems.

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and released to great acclaim in 2001, Amélie (Played by the beautiful Audrey Tatou) inhabits a world of photo booths, suicidal goldfish, and elaborate good deeds. Amelie Poulain was a hit with New Zealand audiences the first time around and The Archive and Embassy are sure she will win hearts all over again.

Amélie Screens at the Dell, Botanic Gardens 9pm Thursday 10 February 2005. Moviegoers are encouraged arrive early and pick a good spot. Space at the outdoor screenings is always at a premium and in the past audience members have been known to sit in the trees. In case of bad weather Amélie will screen on Thursday 17 February 2005
