From The wonderful world of Amelie (2002), directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet:

In the streets of Paris, struck with grief, millions of mourning anonyms gather for the funeral cortège to show in silence their great sorrow of being forever orphans. What a strange fate, that of this young woman deprived of herself, yet so sensitive to the charm of the little things in life. Like Don Quichotte, she was determined to grapple the unforgiving grinder of all the human sorrows.”.
