Romance Without Glamour
Who of us in life ever is not worried about the upcoming date and repeated many times like a mantra: "Everything will be fine."?
But when both terribly complex about dates and their life looks like in the famous Chekhov’s story “The Man In A Case”, where the main character is trying to organize the life without additional worries, emotions and stresses, then the result will be clear – the total crash of hopes. But the movie Romantics Anonymous shows us that people in love not only can but must overcome their complexes.
Actually when it comes to love complexes are not so important. In love there aren’t generally accepted rules, despite the fact that hundreds of movies about so-called “dolce vita” told us another vision. You can not give a specific method of the behavior for the person you love.
She may faint from the compliment. He is running to the bathroom to change the wet shirt on the first date. They both are very worrying. They are made for each other, they are soul mates. They like the most romantic thing in the life – the chocolate. They should be together, but they uncompromisingly self-conscious. Their shyness is beyond all limits and does not allow them to lead a normal life and threatens not to be together.
Absurd situations, which arise with the characters throughout the film, at the beginning look like a farce but the second part completely exonerates them.
The movie is romantic and it will captivate to romance. It is stripped of all low-lying feelings. The attempt to present the film outside the box is very successful. Situations that arise with the characters make you feel the part of what is happening and feel similar feelings. These situations are often comical and cause a good laugh. The combination of mild comedy and romantic stories is woven into the movie very successfully.
I recommend this movie to all fans of French romance or at least chocolate.
