Movie Info

When mysterious Vianne and her child arrive in a tranquil French town in the winter of 1959, no one could have imagined the impact that she and her spirited daughter would have on the community stubbornly rooted in tradition. Within days, she opens an unusual chocolate shop, across the square from the church. Her ability to perceive her customers' desires and satisfy them with just the right confection, coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation -- just as Lent begins.

    Lighthearted and fluffy to a fault, Chocolat may not be the deepest nor the most thought provoking film out there, but it's certainly a "treat" for all those who want a funny, delightful and sweet film.

    I thought this was gonna be a dumb romance, but this movie was really good. The true great thing is the music, the score was perfect if you ask me. I think they could've made the town brighter and more colorful if you get what im saying. The acting was great, and deserved more recognition. The plot was well done and fun. This was a very good movie, and I wish you see it.

    Delightful and warm-hearted film with some great performances and a touching dramatic storyline.

    Though the name may suggest it to be a romance poetry kind of movie, Chocolat is by far nothing as mention above. Nominated for Oscar for her work in Chocolat, Juliette Binoche did a marvelous job playing Vianne, a single mother with a gift of cocoa cooking who come into a small France village and influence the people for a modern change. Johnny Depp is heavily advertise in this movie though not particularly a bad thing but he has minimum screen time. Lena Olin and Alfred Molina leave me impressed by their stellar acting and performance. 8.2/10.
