Synopsis:
With his beloved chocolate business turning sour, socially awkward boss Jean-Rene (Benoit Poelvoorde) decides to enlist an extra pair of hands. Enter AngSlique (Isabelle Carre), a chronically shy youngwoman who shares Jean-Rene's passion for all things sugar and sweet. She is the answer to his prayers in ways he didn't even realise. Because while he is looking for a sales rep to keep his sinking ship afloat, she is in fact a gifted, albeit covert, chocolatiere extraordinaire whose treats are legendary around town. As the pair become more and more acquainted it is not long before chocolate is not the only sensual element in the air.

Fabulous and Delightful - Romantics Anonymous review by DB

Spoiler Alert
17/10/2014

This is a brilliantly funny film done in only the inimitable way that the French can. It's witty and charming and subtle. A lovely movie and great comedy, thoroughly recommend it.

Sweet hesitancy - Romantics Anonymous review by NH

Spoiler Alert
02/12/2017

This is a gentle romantic comedy, with good actors who are well cast and a story about innocence and longing that is probably all too common in a world that is sadly insensitive to the very real anxieties that bedevil relationships.

Critic review

Romantics Anonymous (aka Les émotifs anonymes) review by Alyse Garner - Cinema Paradiso

An undeniably but indefinably French movie Romantic’s Anonymous is the story of a struggling chocolate factory owner and a sales executive who find themselves drawn to one another by their mutual issues with anxiety and love of chocolate.

The pair, played by Benoit Poolveorde and Isabelle Carre, make for rather unusual leads, yet their respective shyness and anxiety is somehow charming and becomes more and more touching as their relationship develops. The casting of these two accomplished French actors is easily the crowning jewel to this quaint little movie, that pulses gently with sweetness and magic that often only exists in European cinema.

Though I would not call the aptly re-titled Romantic’s Anonymous a masterpiece, I would certainly recommend it to anyone that harbours a secret belief in true love.
