Rightfully sombre in its contemplation of how its title character was treated, and yet absolutely jubilant in depicting him do what he did best.

Zem's spirited evocation of Paris bohemia, fin-de-siecle style, has turned the film into a box-office hit in France, as well as exciting debate about race relations.

July 12, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Visually handsome and for the most part thoroughly entertaining.

Chocolat is a film that travels from raucous to heartbreaking and back again more than once. It is an engaging, entertaining, angering and mostly very admirable couple of hours.
