Format: DVD
This is a pleasant, though obvious, adult fable, broadly hinting at the often sensual, restorative, and mystical properties of chocolate. A beautiful and mysterious woman, Vianne, delightfully played by the winsome Juliette Binoche, along with her daughter, Anouk, arrive in a remote and very provincial French town, where she rents a patisserie from an elderly, crotchety woman, magnificently played by Judi Dench, and turns it into a chocolatier. From here, she concocts visually dazzling, mouthwatering amounts of chocolates, along with copious cups of hot cocoa made from a very special recipe, that are always sold or given by Vianne with a Julia Roberts style, mega watt smile. Vianne is always kind, compassionate, and tolerant. She is, therefore, a person to be feared by those who lack those traits. That is why she is greeted with bare civility by the town's mayor, wonderfully played by the always underrated, very talented Alfred Molina. He is a sanctimonious, intolerant, unhappy, religious prig, who insists on writing the sermons for the town's young, beleagured priest. Offended by Vianne's easy charm and her resistance to his invitation to attend church services, the mayor, whose hardened exterior hides a profound sorrow, declares war on Vianne, as he perceives her to be a threat to his established order of things.

Meanwhile, Vianne finally warms up and disarms her crotchety landlady, jumpstarts a tired marriage for two villagers, and befriends a battered woman, played with appropriate pathos, delicacy, and spirit by Lena Olin. She also manages a flirtation with an Irish drifter named Roux, well played by Johnny Depp, though they seem to lack chemistry together.

This is a unique movie with features and messages portrayed in "Babette's Feast (1988)" and "Like Water for Chocolate (1993)".

The story has been told many ways. Yet this movie is still unique in its presentation. We get to visit with our favorite actors and they do such a good job that they do not overwhelm the characters. I especially liked Alfred Molina who played a similar role in "Enchanted April (1992)" as someone that really was not a bad person; he was just misunderstood or has a misunderstanding and comes around later to be really a good guy.

Like "Babette's Feast", everyone is supposed to shun Vianne Rocher who goes out of her way to help people. And like "Like Water for Chocolate" the movie has a mystical feel.

Basic story is a town where everyone knows their place and duty is visited by a north wind caring a mysterious woman and her daughter. Their present's wakes up the people from their organized existence.

The DVD has all the DVD goodies that you are looking for, such as voice over, deleted scenes etc. And they do not force the coming attractions on you.

I really enjoye dthsi movie. I found it to be both humorous and romantic. I was really lucky to have chosen an off night to go to the theater so I sat in a vintage theater, all by myself and watched the show. Perhaps the setting added to the mystique and romance of the movie and allowed me to focus deeply into it. Juliette Bincohe is excellent as a woman who is used to moving because of the wild effects her work and has to finally confront that she's become so habitual in her wanderlust that it's her and not her mysterious effects that making her move around so. Judi Dench is also great as an old woman who has to learn to change her ways. While everyone is affected by the chocolate, it's interesting to see how the opposing sides judge freedom. This film has a subversive message about pleasure and it's relationship to God. So many times God is portrayed in Western culture as authoritative, somber and frankly, mean. When in fact, the Divine is anything but those things, this film ultimately reflects that concept.

Whether as an afternoon teatime snack, quick pick-me-up at work, or Halloween treat, chocolate has become a staple in America. This movie is about chocolate, but about its use as a healer and its power to "unlock hidden yearnings and to shape destiny." Figures, since depression can be alleviated by chocolate. And the creator of this confection in this extremely palatable movie is a healer herself.
Chocolat tells the story of two people who descend upon a provincial French village in the wake of a sly and strong north wind. Those two people are Vianne and her young daughter Anouk. Oh, perhaps I should say two people and an animal. Anouk has an imaginary friend, Pontouf, who is a kangaroo. She sets up shop, a potisserie, and opens it during Lent, not exactly perfect timing in a God-fearing village whose inhabitants believe in calm, tranquilitee, to use French. Basically, knowing one's place, being obedient to authority, and going to church on Sunday are the pillars of this French village.
The idealist and romantic Vianne comes against the extremely conservative mayor, the Comte de Reynaud, as well as most of the people here. She doesn't wear black, doesn't go to church on Sundays, and (gasp!) is an unwed mother. She is also the only one who accepts Roux, the handsome leader of raft-bound river rats the town shuns as being immoral. As a wanderer herself, Vianne naturally finds affinity with the riverfolk.
Before long, things start happening in the village. People who buy her wares become more loosened in attitude, more courageous, and in the case of one married couple, saves their marriage with a rebirth in their sex life. She also helps her landlady establish ties with her grandson, who has an affinity for drawing morbid pictures.
