In brief, Vanderschelden holds true on the book's objective to situate Amlie within the context of the French film industry (2). In writing on Jeunet for French Film Guides, she carves a space for the director, often left in the sidelines by French critics, among the most influential French directors of our time. The author's work being primarily centered on a factual approach to the film Amlie, it offers a good complement to the more analytical study developed by Elizabeth Ezra in her recent book, Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Finally, Amlie is a must for teachers using Jeunet's blockbuster in language classroom and those researching in French film scholarship.
