This actress contains examples of:
- Billing Displacement: As the only current French actress that most of the English speaking world is guaranteed to know (along with possibly Juliette Binoche and Marion Cotillard), it happens to her a lot. She's front and center on the American posters for The Spanish Apartment, even though her on-screen time in the whole movie probably wouldn't total 10 minutes.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Most notably in Amélie but also in some of her other movies.
- One-Woman Song: "Tautou" by Brand New. The lyrics consist of "I'm sinking like a stone in the sea/I'm burning like a bridge for your body".
- Playing with Character Type: He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not completely and utterly eviscerated the persona she'd become known for after Amélie.
