Chocolate is the beautiful and captivating comedy from the acclaimed director of the Cider House Rules. Nobody could have imagined the impact that the striking Vianne(Binoche) would make when she arrived in a tranquil, old-fashioned French town. In her very unusual chocolate shop, Vianne begins to create mouth-watering confections that almost magically inspire the straitlaced villagers to abandon themselves to temptation and happiness! But it is not until another stranger, the handsome Roux arrives in town that Vianne is finally able to recognize her own desires!

A beautifully whimsical story by a slate of perfectly-cast actors in an unbelievably idyllic setting. My wife and I have watched this so many times and have never tired of the wide range of good feelings that come from the story. This is a wonderful humanitarian feel-good movie with some deep hidden messages that show humanity at its best and worst.
This is one of my favourite movies and I've been trying to get a copy for many years. Amazing to me that it hasn't been available in video stores. So happy to get one, finally, via Amazon but not quite so happy once I'd received it. It stalls about 2/3 of the way through and the only way to get it unstalled is to rewind and then forward again. Annoying to say the least! The movie itself is fantastic. It's only the mechanics of the DVD that is annoying.
This is still the best movie (of all times). I re-discovered this movie, after I lost my original copy. When I saw it again, it's like I got into this world of fantasy. And, Johnny Depp!All I can say is Wow...
