2001's best film

Not being a fan of Binoche *at all,* I was reluctant at seeing this at first, but having heard the delightful soundtrack, I went ahead, and was not disappointed.
Movies without guns and violence are so rare these days, they are difficult to appreciate when seen.

Wonderful performances by Molina, Binoche, Judi Dench and even Johnny Depp add credibility to this story. The choco... read more

I was unsure what I was going to expect from Chocolat. When I saw it on DVD, I actually really liked it. It was a very cute, intelligent, charming and beautiful story. It was cute and charming because of the chocolates and other things involving chocolate. Besides chocolate, it was a beautiful film on love, friendship, loyalty and commitment. This was a very personal film to watch because Vianne w... read more

A fable of emotional liberation and chocolate. A mother and daughter move to a small French town where they open a chocolate shop. The town, religious and morally strict, is against them as they represent free-thinking and indulgence. When a group of Boat Gypsies float down the river, the prejudices of the Mayor leads to a crisis.

'Chocolat' is indeed sinfully delicious!

“When I heard of 'Chocolat', every time we talked about chocolate in French, I thought about the movie a lot! In the end, I watched 'Chocolat' and it was a great movie!

'Chocolat' is indeed sinfully delicious! This movie supplies different types of chocolate when Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche) arrives in a town in France with her daughter and she opens a chocolate shop. Her chocolate changes the lives of the townspeople.

Juliette Binoche is joined by actors including Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Alfred Molina and Lena Olin who are all really good in it as well! 'Chocolat' is (probably) the most delicious movie of 2000 but not the best...” read more

"Based on the Joanne Harris novel, Chocolat paints a delicious portrait of a young drifter who moves into a strict, uptight, Catholic, French town, where she opens a chocolaterie that releases the town folk's wildest inhibitions during Lent."

"The beginning is absolutely fab! But I kind of lost interest in the middle, though I don't think that was the film's fault.. Juliette Binoche is amazing! So are Lena Olin and Judi Dench. I love how old fashioned it is! It's lovely, watch it! "

"Juliette Binoche & chocolate. Two great tastes that taste great together. And yeah, I know I should probably get into more detail about why I think this is such a quality romance film, but to be honest, whenever I think about of this "charmingly light-hearted food fable", I can't get the idea of a chocolat Binoche out of my mind. :homerdrool: "
