Romantics Anonymous (English Subtitled)

Too low to display

The American title, "Romantics Anonymous," is a little misleading, in that the movie is not about romantics so much as it's about people so fearful and self-conscious that they are flummoxed by every social encounter.

"Romantics Anonymous" audiences may be surprised to learn that Carre and Poelvoorde are not generally known as comic actors. Carre has a lilting quality that lends itself to comedy, but she is mainly a powerhouse, specializing in women in the midst of great emotional or psychological disturbance. The last time she and Poelvoorde made a movie together ("In His Hands"), he played a serial killer, and she played a twisted woman who falls in love with him.
