A film by Lasse Hallström

ON SCREEN

Chocolat is the story of a beautiful woman charged with special powers: Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche), a mysterious outsider arrives in the French village of Lansquenet to open a chocolaterie selling luscious morsels that tantalise the tongue, cure lost hopes and awaken unexpected emotions..

 

Vianne's effect is immediate and extraordinary: the elderly find themselves recalling young love, troubled couples regain their spark and sniping neighbours become happy friends. But Vianne's sumptuous candies also arouse an escalating battle between passion and moral indignation. As some in the town begin to let go, others clamp down, led by the righteous mayor, the Comte de Reynaud (Alfred Molina), who declares Vianne public enemy number one.

 

Just as she is about to raise the white flag, an unexpected romance with a handsome stranger forces Vianne to choose between leaving her hostile surroundings or making a true difference to the townsfolk.

 

Chocolat was a critical and commercial hit world wide, earning 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Actress for Juliette Binoche. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom and adapted from the novel by Joanne Harris, Chocolat also stars Judi Dench, Lena Olin and Johnny Depp.
