About this album

Amélie is the soundtrack or original score to the French Academy Award- and Golden Globe-nominated motion picture Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain (Amélie).
Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet chanced upon the largely accordion and piano driven music of Yann Tiersen while driving with his production assistant who put on a CD he hadn’t heard before. Greatly impressed, he immediately bought Tiersen’s entire catalogue and eventually commissioned him to compose pieces for the film. The soundtrack features both compositions from Tiersen’s first three albums, but also new items, variants of which can be found on his fourth album, L’Absente, which he was writing at the same time.
Beside the accordion and piano the music features parts played with harpsichord, banjo, bass guitar, vibraphone and even a bicycle wheel at the end of “La Dispute” (which plays over the opening titles in the motion picture).
Prior to discovering Tiersen, Jeunet was primarily considering composer Michael Nyman to score the film.
