Director Jean-Pierre Améris Scheduled to Appear

“This delectable comedy tells the story of Angélique (Isabelle Carré), a gifted chocolate-maker with a lifelong case of uncontrollable shyness. Jean-René (Benoît Poelvoorde) suffers from a similar case of terminal abashment and runs a fledgling chocolate company in desperate need of a new direction. When the two nervous Nellies meet, they are forced to fess up to their sweet affections for each other.” – Tribeca Film Festival
