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.
In order for the script to crackle and the heart to move, you need to suspend more disbelief that proves possible here.
It'll be too light and frothy for some tastes, but it's bound to leave you with a warm glow.
A mug of warm cocoa with marshmallow topping that produces a comfy feel-good glow.
An adorable, quirky chocolatier looking for love? One guess which country this heavily whimsical comedy hails from.
Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Girl faints and boy jumps out the bathroom window.
The concept of a romantic comedy tinted with melancholy works very well within the context of quirky French cinema.
Romantics Anonymous is a feel-good charmer, aided by little touches such as a retro soundtrack and slightly unexpected song and dance routines.
Flighty, feather-light French romantic comedy...A very pleasant treat.
If you really like French ambience, this film is drowning in it. But don't expect Amelie or Chocolat. This film is far less witty, charming and moving than those films, no matter how desperately it tries to emulate them.
So much is conveyed in what isn't said: the half-finished words, the broken syllables, the inarticulate noises, even the silences.
Romantics Anonymous is a delightfully sweet comedy where love, chocolate and social anxiety blend to make a deliciously offbeat treat.
Wears out it's welcome by the end, in spite of not being a very long film, but mostly it's a sweet little story about two socially awkward people getting together.
The chocolate making side to the story is nice and had me depressed to be on a diet and a budget!
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.
