Critic Reviews for Romantics Anonymous
Movies that truly have the capacity to delight - that amuse and lift the spirits and create a warm feeling - are rare. "Romantics Anonymous" is one of those rare delights.
It'll be too light and frothy for some tastes, but it's bound to leave you with a warm glow.

Audience Reviews for Romantics Anonymous
A quirky love story between two people who are afraid of their emotions and taking a leap of faith. I like the metaphor the film posits. The actors are very convincing in their roles and quite charming. It felt a little too sweet and silly at times, but it is a very nice tale.
Doux comme le chocolat...
Two chocolatiers, both of whom are paralyzed by emotional attachment, fall in love.
This film is positively delightful. It's true that I'm a sucker for stories about awkward people falling in love, but I think the film is universal. Even the broadly comic bits, like Angelique encouraging herself as she walks to the door of the chocolate shop and continues encouraging herself as she about-faces or the musical number, are well-executed. Benoit Poelvoorde and Isabell Carre are funny and effective, and the plot unfolds smoothly -- at less than an hour and a half, there's no wasted time here.
As with any romantic comedy, this film had more than its fair share of "must-happens," obvious to only the most discerning viewer.
Overall, I had fun watching this film.
