Once you've barricaded yourself with all the chocolate you have in your house, you've become ready to see this movie. Set in a charming décor, with a lovely cast of talented actors, this story portrays the immortal theme of good vs. bad in both private and constrained social life. Heartwarming, with a touch of fairy-tale dust - still, may be too sweet for some tastes.
wonderful, kind, light and inspiring. i felt the new energy after watching this film and now i am looking for things to discover, to feel and to live! and yes, Juiliette Binoche is the most beautiful woman .
Petit conte gentillet et sympathique sur les bienvenus thèmes de la tolérance et du plaisir de vivre qui se déguste, contre toute attente et tout régime, sans hâte ni déplaisir, avec un peu de gourmandise et de délectation... www.cinefiches.com
I must confess, I'm dark chocolate addicted, the more bitter, the better. Yeah, I know, I didn't rate the film: isn't it all about chocolate? I also love the rub-a-dub sound of this word, like, breaking a chocolate bar. [listen: /ˈtʃɒklət/]
Warm-hearted story about things that matter: love, sincerity, tolerance, standing up for the things you believe are righteous and good, and enjoying the simple pleasures in life, like a good dinner with friends, or like chocolate.
I like the fact that chocolate and a liberal, independent woman has created a (positive) "revolution" in the small French town.
Also, I really admire French actress Juliette Binoche. Bonus points: Johnny Depp!
