I am struck by the similarities between this movie and some of Jean Pierre Jeunets work on Amelie. The color palettes, the look of the main actress, even some specific shots seem to be taken from this movie.
The door at the end of the hallway
The flashing of the signal mirror
The ride on the back of a motorcycle
Coincidence? Who knows. They are both beautiful films and quite different from each other but I’d love to sit down and talk to Jeunet about it some day.
