However, her breakthrough came in 2001 when she starred as a lonely waitress in Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain (Amelie). This quirky, romantic film was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and won an Oscar after becoming the number one French film in the United States. It also earned Tautou a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) nomination for best actress. She also appeared in the comedy about foreign exchange students, L'Auberge espangole.
In 2002, Tautou made her English-language debut in Dirty Pretty Things. Then, she appeared in Pas sur la bouche (Not on the Lips; 2003) and Nowhere to Go but Up (2003), before teaming up with Jeunet again Un Long Dimanche de fiancailles (2004; A Very Long Engagment) which won a Cesar Award. Her first big budget Hollywood film was The Da Vinci Code, before she returned to the intimate, french films that first made her famous.
