Amelie

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Amelie picks up Nino's dropped album, in the shot when she is sitting on some steps looking through it, the shadow of the camera crane is visible on the ground behind her. It is only seen when the camera moves over her to let us look into the album. (00:40:05)

Visible crew/equipment: Amelie steals her father's gnome, runs back to the train station, but it is closing, so she sleeps in a photobooth. As the camera zooms in on her look at the right side of the booth, and you can see a shadow casting over it from the camera crew. (00:38:05)

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.
