Amélie (2001) is the French romantic comedy film that made those who were not already in love with Paris fall in love with this charming city. Set in the picturesque neighbourhood of Montmartre, it’s still possible to follow her footsteps and delve into her dreamy world – if you know where to look.
There’s a certain spark of magic while whizzing through the Abbesses Metro Station and realise it’s from the film. It’s the station next to the carousel where Amélie kindly assists the blind man and rekindles his passion for life, detailing all the delights he can’t see. Whilst the real station used for this scene was Porte des Lilas, the small and charming square of Place des Abbesses features heavily throughout the film as ardent fans will be quick to point out.
