In the costume shop with its tempting windows, Au clown de la République, Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) is looking for something to wear before her photo booth session.

One hour later, boulevard Saint-Martin Amélie steps into a jokes and costume shop. At the same moment, a man leaves his home at Lecourbe Street. Twenty-six min later, Amélie arrives at the photo machine at the Gare de l’Est.

The narrator (André Dussolier)

Au clown de la République, this is the place where Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) goes to find a costume.

This costume shop allows him to dress up for the future photo session in the photo booth.

She finds a Zorro costume, takes a picture of herself and sends a beautiful letter to Nino Quincampoix (Mathieu Kassovitz), with whom she is secretly in love.


Jean-Pierre Jeunet spoke about the film for the first time in 1997 after the shooting ofAlien: Resurrection.

With the exception of two brief scenes, on the phone at Sacré-Coeur and at the Café des deux moulins, Amélie and Nino do not exchange a single line of dialogue in the film.

11 Boulevard Saint-Martin

11 boulevard Saint-Martin is home to Au clown de la République, a costume store.

Created in 1900, Au clown de la République is a beautiful store offering the sale and rental of disguises, costumes and related items.

The owners of Au clown de la République also own the Académie du Bal Costumé (22 Avenue Ledru-Rollin, 75012 Paris) for the pleasure of their customers.

With its orange frontage, it is visible from very far in the street. It is moreover this last one that caught the eye of Jean-Pierre Jeunet for his movie The fabulous destiny of Amélie Poulain.
