Movie Info

Romantics Anonymous tells the story of Angélique (Isabelle Carré), a gifted chocolate-maker whose uncontrollable shyness prevents her from acknowledging her talents. Struggling chocolatier Jean-René (Benoît Poelvoorde), who also suffers from a similar case of awkward bashfulness that threatens to drown his company, hires Angelique as his new sales associate. Realizing she's attracted to her boss, Angelique decides to anonymously develop a new line of chocolates to save the company. With the future of the business hanging in the balance, Angelique and Jean-Rene must overcome their limitations and confess their sweet affections for one another in this delectable comedy. -- (C) Tribeca

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.

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.

Améris's recipe here calls for everything in moderation, resulting in a movie that never threatens to offend nor, particularly, to delight, though it does offer a good view on a modestly charming actors' duet.

Audience Reviews for Romantics Anonymous

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.

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.
