Turns out Amélie grew up, got glasses and now works behind a grocer’s desk – kind of. French comedy from first-time director Julien Rappeneau Rosalie Blum follows a similar cutesy-stalker narrative without half as much whimsy. Vincent (Kyan Khojandi) is a balding barber, who still lives with his eccentric, puppet-wielding mother. In an ever-distant long distance relationship with a woman in Paris, Vincent becomes enamoured with Rosalie, an intriguing woman who serves him at the local grocers.

Khojandi is a convincingly hangdog hero, while Asaaz is a delightfully daffy Aude whose laziness and eccentric lifestyle become quite endearing. Rosalie is more of an enigma, but that's as it should be.

Rappeneau has been writing scripts for 15 years. This is his first time as director and he handles it with care and a light touch.

Rappeneau seems to have crafted his film from many sources without admitting it's an homage, but none of his elements conjure up quite the charm of their forebears.

Whimsical, tender and original, Rosalie Blum is a fabulous debut.

The elliptical narrative structure keeps audiences guessing for much longer than one might expect.

A Sundance-y feel-good dramedy, in French.

In time, we may look back on Rosalie Blum as this year's Amelie.
