red + blue


Director Jeunet and cinematographer Delbonnel wanted each shot to be primarily green or red, with just a flash of blue or yellow, as these two demonstrate. The blue objects were added post-filming. Just one of the features that make this film a visual wonder, don't you think?

Ali,

Thanks so much for extending this to two weeks- it's been a fabulous run - can't wait to see which movie you do next, might I suggest a Wes Anderson?

Cheers, Kaili

Ali, I finally rented Amelie...I have yet to watch it. Ceej and I will watch it this weekend. Your blogs related to the film have been oh so lovely. Something to have inspired such beauty must be oh so beautiful itself. Can't wait.

i knew this little fact and I have been trying to incorporate it in to my own photography.
so interesting how people are inspired:)
love this week or 2... give me an excuse to obsess over my fave movie.

Because I don't have the eye for these things you do, I would never notice the painstaking details that went into the aesthetic of this film. I think I fell in love with the narrative--which is also crazy awesome. That's what makes Amelie so grand! Thanks for all the insights.

You've officially convinced me. I've never seen Amelie but I'm going to run out this weekend and rent it. It always looked really adorable but now it's a must see. Thanks!

Delbonnel is the cinematographer for the next Harry Potter film, Half-Blood Prince, too.
