Unfortunately, most players guessed the director of "Amélie," Jean-Pierre Jeunet, a good guess but not correct. (Other incorrect guesses included Audrey Tautou, Roger Vadim, and Guillaume Laurant.) Ten players were tied for the lead score in Round XXII this week, and this goo eliminated eight of them.
