the year: 2010

the genre: comedy

the plot: Angélique is a gifted chocolate-maker whose uncontrollable shyness prevents her from acknowledging her talents. Struggling chocolatier Jean-René, who also suffers from a similar case of awkward bashfulness that threatens to drown his company, (in a misunderstanding) hires Angelique as his new sales associate. Realizing she’s attracted to her boss, Angelique decides to anonymously develop a new line of chocolates to save the company. With the future of the business hanging in the balance, Angélique and Jean-René must overcome their limitations and confess their sweet affections for one another in this delectable comedy.

don't miss: the ruffled tuxedo shirt. (schnork-giggle!)

also don't miss: the slowest car chase in movie history.  (At least that's what the director calls it.) 

extra bonus points: if you can name the song that Angelique sings to herself when she needs a little courage.  (The choreography is pretty dead on.)

also don't miss: the web-con with the hermit from the mountains.

listen for (or read, if you don't speak French): "I am a volcano!"
