Coax Miramax to edit Amelie and make it into a film that adults can watch with children.
This petition had 7 supporters
Dear Jean-Pierre Jeunet,
I am not requesting censorship - I am requesting accessibility and inclusion, as well as the pure unadulterated joy of sharing the beautiful things in this world, which in turn make this world more beautiful.
The Amelie that lives inside of me wants to share this film with children everywhere, and although this film was created primarily for adults it would not hurt anyone, or anything, to open this up to a younger audience.
On behalf of children I have started this petition.
If you take exception to this request ask yourself the following...
Would Amelie love this film to be shown in schools as an artistic introduction to French and world cinema?
Would Amelie love to be a role model for children as opposed to merely entertainment for adults?
What would Amelie think about this petition - would she sign it?
This film is magical, influential, educational, and inspiring, but is currently unsuitable for any adult and child to watch together due to a few fleeting scenes.
Removing (or replacing these scenes with simple animation to fill in any gaps) would open this film up to a whole new audience - an audience who are over-saturated with disposable films which very often have very little value on any level.
