Critic Reviews for Merci pour le chocolat
We can rejoice that he carries on, breathes his profession as his native air, makes pictures of varying quality but persistently makes them.
An elegant, exquisitely modulated psychological thriller.
It's enough to watch Huppert scheming, with her small, intelligent eyes as steady as any noir villain, and to enjoy the perfectly pitched web of tension that Chabrol spins.
Merci Pour le Chocolat has a restraint and rigor that we don't see in commercial American films, the kind that a director creates when he has no interest in sentimentality or in soliciting the audience's favor.
A sun-drenched masterpiece, part parlor game, part psychological case study, part droll social satire.
Audience Reviews for Merci pour le chocolat
A somewhat average thriller from Chabrol. It starts out well enough, but losses it towards the end and ultimately leaves too many questions unanswered. However despite it's weaknesses it's always worthwhile watching Huppert and at least you get to listen to Liszt's 'Funerailles' pretty much throughout the film.
Another mystic character by the superb Isabelle Huppert. [Merci Pour Le Chocolat] is better than average & moves in a right tempo. Only Mika (Huppert's character) has been found suspicious as early as 1/3 of the film but there was not so-called twist & turn whilst I expected a big one. Her confession at the end only left me with more question marks.
all the movies I've seen with isabelle hupert cast her as somewhat psychotic and this one is no different. she makes her famous hot chocolate and gives it to those she envies...
