Amelie from Montmartre (Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, Le) - 2001 Movie Quotes


Posted ByQuote
  Nino is late. Amelie can only see two explanations. 1--He didn't get the photo 2--Before he could assemble it... a gang of bank robbers took him hostage. The cops gave chase. They got away... but he caused a crash. When he came to, he'd lost his memory. An ex-con picked him up...mistook him for a fugitive and shipped him to Istanbul. There he met some Afghan raiders... who took him to steal some Russian warheads. But their truck hit a mine in Tajikistan. He survived, took to the hills... and became a Mujaheddin. Amelie refuses to get upset for a guy... who'll eat borscht all his life in a hat like a tea cozy (full quote)
