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.

Flighty, feather-light French romantic comedy...A very pleasant treat.

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.

Whilst I hoped there would be a little more substance, I still found myself caught up in the charm of this farce.

Set in Lyon amid the world of chocolate making, this charmingly old-fashioned French romantic comedy is a truly mouth-watering confection.

As sweet as chocolate that's spiced with bitterness of varying degrees, this whimsical charmer about two eccentrics weighed down by anxiety, is a delight

The script is witty, the chemistry just right, and the overall effect so sweet it's a little like eating too much chocolate.

Romantics Anonymous is about emotional-cripples who find love in one another's awkward embrace. They're cutesy. They're clumsy. They're also chocolatiers. Seriously, abandon hate, all ye who enter here.

A frothy confection about awkward love that may strike a chord with bashful would-be suitors.

Ridiculously charming and almost too sweet for its own good, this is an enjoyable French romcom (or Fromcom) with a witty script and delightful performances from Poelvoorde and Carre, though it's also a little on the slight side.

It is a pleasant little film, reminiscent in tone of the 1930s comedies of René Clair and Jean Renoir.

The French are starting to have a monopoly on whimsical romantic comedies and, with this piece of amiable fluff, it's business as usual.

An original that recalls the whimsy and charm of previous Gallic hits Amélie and Chocolat.

It'll be too light and frothy for some tastes, but it's bound to leave you with a warm glow.

A sugar-coated change of tack from an underrated filmmaker. Won't win Améris many new fans, though.

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.
