In 1920, country girl Mathilde is living in Brittany with her aunt and uncle when she learns that her fiancé Manech was one of five French soldiers condemned to a barbarous death by their own side. Court-martialed for intentionally wounding themselves, their punishment is to be thrown into no man's land, unarmed and with their hands tied behind their backs. But Manech may have survived. Hiring a dogged old bird of a private detective and a lawyer to aid her, Mathilde is off on an adventure. She pursues her sleuthing through a flurry of letters, documents, and private interviews--hunting down the soldiers who were in the trenches with Manech--along with their lovers and relatives. She also discovers that she has a sort of doppelgänger: a Corsican prostitute pursuing a parallel investigation for another of the five, and murdering anyone who did her own beloved mate wrong. Mathilde will have to hurry to follow the clues piecing the story together before they are lost forever

Die fabelhafte Welt der Amélie ( )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nach seinem Ausflug in die amerikanische Science-Fiction (Alien - Die Wiedergeburt) kehrt der französische Regisseur und Autor Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Delicatessen, Die Stadt der verlorenen Kinder) in seine eigenen Fantasiewelten zurück und legt mit Die Fabelhafte Welt der Amelie ein hinreißend poetisches Großstadt-Märchen vor. Amelie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) ist eine schüchterne junge Frau. Sie mag ganz besonders flache Steine übers Wasser hüpfen zu sehen und mit einem Löffel die Kruste von Creme brulee zu knacken. Eines Tages findet sie in ihrer Pariser Wohnung eine Schachtel, die ein kleiner Junge vor vielen Jahren dort versteckt haben muß. Sie macht den Mann ausfindig und läßt ihm die Schachtel anonym zukommen, was den Mann zu Tränen rührt und, wie Amelie später erfährt total glücklich gemacht hat. Nun beschließt sie ihren Mitmenschen ein Engel zu sein, der ihnen Glück bringt. Damit wird sie für den gemeinen Ladenbesitzer aus ihrem Haus zum Racheengel, andere aber, verkuppelt sie und verhilft ihnen zu neuem Lebensmut. Als Amelie die Liebe über den Weg läuft, weiß sie sie allerdings nicht zu halten. Aus der Ferne kommuniziert sie mit dem komisch-verrückten Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz), doch als er sie findet, ist aller Mut dahin. Seit Beginn der Filmgeschichte versuchen Regisseure die Welt zu verändern. Jean-Pierre Jeunet hat es mit "Amelie" geschafft. In Frankreich hat der Film einen wahren Boom der guten Taten ausgelöst.
