Since it has been the French Spring in Manila, I've been thinking of Amelie the movie that I loved watching in 2001 and even have a DVD copy at home. I guess one of the things that I liked about Amelie was that she helps out people in need anonymously, she was sort of a heroine and I think it was clearly one of her subconcious personalities as depicted when she wore that Zorro like costume for a moment to pose. Some other chracters come to mind like Robin Hood and Batman. Being undercover, doing things for others, helping them out, the idea of it being incognito reveals more the importance of the act rather than the persona being recognized as the one doing the act of service. Amelie not being a superhero nonetheless is in that league of doing selfless acts that bring happiness to others.
