You know those days when you’re down and out, and you feel just a little bit disappointed with stuff going on? Well, sometimes, when it’s not too bad really, there can be really easy tricks to put yourself in a better mood. One of my favorite things to do when this happens, and that also has proved very effective, is to watch the film Amelie de Montmartre. I know, I know, it’s been so incredibly talked about and imitated and influential since it came out all those years ago, but the actual film in itself is a real gem. The way it makes you really appreciate the small things in life, and let the magic in. The way it’s not about money, lifestyle, big drama or anything like that, but about love and love for life.
I think it’s important to remind oneself every now and then about those things, I know I need to sometimes anyway. If you haven’t seen the film yet, chances are you’re in for a treat.
And here’s some bonus good news: If you have heard and like the music to the film, there’s this Swedish band, Detektivbyrån (it means the Detective Bureau) that in my opinion makes music quite similar to the film score. Here’s a clip. (Weird video, but anyway:)♥
