'Amelie' Star Opens in New Film

The star of the French film Amelie, Audrey Tautou, appears in a new movie opening today. Its title -- He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not -- suggests it's appropriate for Valentine's day. But NPR's Bob Mondello says it's not really the sort of romantic film usually thought of as a "date movie."

Bob Mondello, who jokes that he was a jinx at the beginning of his critical career — hired to write for every small paper that ever folded in Washington, just as it was about to collapse — saw that jinx broken in 1984 when he came to NPR.
