Photographer's Note

I took this picture of the outside the 2 Moulins the café where Amélie Poulain works in the film "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain". In the movie they say that Amélie works on Rue Lepic and that is true, you can actually find this cafe there, in the Montmartre neighborhood. Of course it isn't as nice on the inside as in the movie. They do sell cigarettes but there isn't the nice wooden stand where Georgette stood in the film. Also the film made it seem like there was a lot of space around the restaurant and actually it is pretty smushed into its location and the street it is on is pretty narrow. The service wasn't very good either, but I was glad to be able to walk in Amélie's footsteps for just a bit.
