80 minutes • France-Belgium • 2010

This quirky romantic comedy follows the misadventures of two socially inept people trying to come together. Pathologically shy Angélique (Isabelle Carré) is encouraged by her support group to turn her talent for chocolate into a career with a local firm. Interviewed by company head Jean-René (Benoît Poelvoorde), who uses his fierce reputation to mask his own awkwardness, Angélique is employed not as a chocolatier, but as a vendor to local merchants. Unexpectedly taken with his new employee, Jean-René is advised by his therapist to ask her to dinner, setting the scene for comic misunderstandings, visual gags, and even musical numbers as the pair slowly but surely realise their feelings for each other.

Winning performances from the two leads make for an irresistibly charming and touching film.
