Subject: Cinema
I keep forgetting just how wonderful a film "Amelie" is.

It's made up of all these wonderful moments -- little bits of poetry captured on film. The moment that stands out the most to me is early in the film: Amelie's mother has just dumped the "suicidal" goldfish into the water. It turns around and stares back up at Amelie, blinking. The two stare at each other as the rain starts to fall, the raindrops breaking up the surface to the point where you can't see in any more.
