I took this one to The Grandmother's to see how she would react to a film that had so much food, and chocolate at that, but she didn't share on that subject. She said she liked the movie but had trouble following it at times. I loved this one. Chocolat is a 2000 film based on the novel by the same name. It stars Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Alfred Molina and Johnny Depp.
Salon.com has a review that seems to want to like it but ends up saying, "What turns me off is the combination of simple-mindedness and self-satisfaction. That said, “Chocolat” could be a lot worse". Roger Ebert calls it "charming and whimsical" and says he "enjoyed the movie on its own sweet level". EW says, "the season's latest Euro synthetic confection, manufactured from a proprietary recipe based on focus group data about what consumers enjoy most in a Miramax movie". Rolling Stone likes it and calls it "yummy".
