Storyline
What happens when a man and a woman share a common passion? They fall in love. And this is what happens to Jean-René, the boss of a small chocolate factory, and Angélique, a gifted chocolate maker he has just hired. What occurs when a highly emotional man meets a highly emotional woman? They fall in love, and this is what occurs to Jean-René and Angélique who share the same handicap. But being pathologically timid does not make things easy for them. So whether they will manage to get together, join their solitudes and live happily ever after is a guessing matter.

User Review

My 402rd Review: A charming and magical bitter sweet film

Rating: 8/10


Les Émotifs Anonymes is a wonderful film: very Fench and truly touching
and genuinely funny, with just the right amount of romance versus life
and love and chocolate.

The two protagonists are two chronically emotional stunted
personalities – and you just know they are made for each other – but
how they get there is, like the very best of French comedy,
imaginative, a little chaotic, somewhat mixed-up, but always well
meant.

This is a film I can warmly recommend as one of the best French
romantic comedies of recent memories – it has touches of Amélie and
will appeal to a wide audience – it beautifully shot and lit, and all
in all, the script is witty, the situations are funny without being
ludicrous or cringeworthy, and above all, this is a charming and truly
romantic film, without saccharine, but definitely, with a bitter
sweetness of its own.
