Romantics Anonymous | Film Review

Spread the love

This is an absolutely wonderful film. It just made me smile all the way through it.

Romantics Anonymous is a film about Jean-René, the boss of a small chocolate factory which is about to go bankrupt, and Angélique, a gifted chocolate maker he has just hired as a sales rep. They are both highly emotional and shy. They fall in love but neither of them have the emotional capacity to handle it. Will they work out their differences and live happily ever after? Maybe. And will Angélique get over her shyness and save the Chocolate Mill with her talent for making chocolate? There are a few false starts, especially when Angélique gets stood up by Jean- René. They love each other but can they make it work?

Romantics Anonymous is a very smart film. It has a good premise and the plot does not let you down. This film is the perfect anecdote to depression or a bad day. It is just brilliant. Well-written, well-acted, a little gem of a film. Even if you don’t like French films, or subtitles; watch it.

Five stars. I would definitely watch this again.
