    See the movie. Then you can hear real French people say it many times. :-)

    In America we say AH-muh-lee. In France they don't really accent a particular syllable. It sounds like ah-meh-lee. (I've seen the movie about 400 times.)

    Ah-meh-lee. Ditto to what MrsH said. Watch the movie to hear it said in French. It's stunning and makes me wish I spoke French.
