A mythic fable about tolerance and love with the bitter-swet flavor of a candy that's not entirely fresh but still digestible.

Most movies that criticize religion argue for the abolition of institutions. Chocolat suggests the problem lies in how people manipulate religion to get what they want.

Any movie built on the premise that chocolate can cure mental illness, restore marital passion, unite feuding relatives, assuage anger, defeat oppression, inspire art and get you a date with Johnny Depp is all right in my book.

whimsical and lighthearted, a simple fable with no real message to impart except that Christianity without compassion can quickly dissolve into empty ritual.

The story of Chocolat could be described in one sentence-Footloose, only instead of dancing, it's chocolates.
