Ihr kleines Universum ist bevölkert von suizidgefährdeten Goldfischen, gescheiterten Genies, sehnsuchtskranken Hypochondern und anderen skurrilen Gestalten. Als sie eines Tages beschließt, als gute Fee in das Leben ihrer Mitmenschen zu treten, weiß sie genau, was sie zu tun hat: Sie schickt einen Gartenzwerg auf Weltreise, zaubert jahrzehntelang verschollene Liebesbriefe wieder herbei und wird zum Schutz- und Racheengel in einer Person. Nur wenn es um ihr eigenes Glück geht, steht Amélie sich selbst im Weg. Und als sie sich in den schüchternen Nico (Mathieu Kassovitz) verliebt, weiß sie sich kaum noch einen Rat - bis ihr ein guter Geist auf die Sprünge hilft
