Amelie

Question: How does Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man know Amélie is looking for Bretodeau/Bredoteau aka The Box Man. He says "I've lived here for five years. This is the first time we've met." Then adding that he never goes out on the landing, they're all creeps. So my question is who told him Amélie was looking for The Box Man? Lucien the grocer boy maybe? As he delivers to his flat. Or maybe Madeleine Wallace the Concierge (00:26:20)

Paul Andrews

Chosen answer: The Glass Man isn't as reclusive as he tells Amelie; he obviously talks to many people and spies on them with his binoculars (he knows all about Amelie's revenge on the grocer and the letter she wrote to Mrs. Wells). It isn't revealed where he got the specific information about Amelie's search for Dominique Bredoteau.

Question: Amelie goes to visit the parents of the green grocer to find out the name of the boy that lived in her apartment in the 50's. As she arrives at the parents' house there is a very tall bridge or walkway, does anyone know its name or location?

Donvogel

Answer: Looking at the height of the bridge, this is most likely the Aqueducs d'Arcueil et de Cachan (which is in Paris).

Question: What is the significance of the second video Amelie gives the glass man? I understand the first one - the horse is with the cyclists, and yet different from them, like the girl in the painting. But I don't get the second one.

Answer: As far as I can see, Amelie is just trying to give him a view of the world, so he doesn't become entirely cut off.

Continuity mistake: When Bretodeau picks up the treasure box, inside the phone booth, the way he holds it changes between shots (00:30:20)

Trivia: Amelie is shot in two main thematic colours: red and green, which vary according to situations and moods. Watch it again with that in mind.
