In the footsteps of Amélie Poulain

One of my hobbies here in Paris has been to visit some of the places where scenes of the movie Amélie takes place. Because I just looooove that movie :) So these are the places I've been to:

Most of the movie-scenes are filmed in Montmartre since it's there where Amélie lives. Here's the square next to the church Sacré-Coeur where Amélie gives the photo-album back to Nino...

...who's got his lastnamn from this street: Quincampoix.

These are the stairs Amélie makes him follow to find the next clue in search of the photoalbum.

And this is the metro-station that Amélie uses a lot in the movie. It's called Abbesses.

This should be the canal lock on Canal Saint-Martin where Amélie skips stones in the beginning of the movie.

This metro-station is called Lamarck-Caulaincourt where Amélie leaves the blind man after walking with him on rue Caulaincourt and explaining to him all the things she sees around her.

And do you recognise this? It's the lamp that stands on her bedside table! :) It may now be seen in the café where she worked, Café des Deux Moulins, where I've been for coffee (or actually hot chocolate) already two times :)

There's still plenty of more places to visit, but some of them are outside Paris, and I have to admit that I'm a bit too lazy for that :) Just to visit all these places was enough! Now I'm just looking forward to be able to watch the movie again once I get back home, because then I can be like "Hey! I know that place! I've been there! Yay!" like all the time! Hihi.
