4 out of 10 Chocolat
Caitríona from Wicklow, 26 Jun 2009
Don't normally write things like - I must prefer this film to the book! - but in this case I just do. I found the book just too dark - while the film is much lighter and happier. Just the same is captures the mood of the time - and those chocolate preparation scenes in the kitchen- just made my mouth water!

4 out of 10 Chocolat
Nuala from Laois, 11 Jun 2008
Enjoyable film if only to see all the chocolate. Recommend it particularly as village life in France looks lovely. Johnnie Depp plays a small role but worthwhile. Feel good movie particularly suited to a sat afternoonl.

What a wonderful & charming film!! This film was not what I expected at all and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Juliette Binoche & Judi Dench were both fantastic in it as was the brilliant Johnny Depp

What's it about....
When mysterious stranger Vianne (Juliette Binoche) and her spirited daughter arrive in a tranquil French town in the winter of 1959, nobody could have imagined the impact they would have on this old-fashioned, buttoned up community. Within days, she opens a very unusual chocolate shop, filled with mouthwatering confections. Her uncanny, almost magical ability to perceive her customers' private desires and satisfy them with just the right confection coaxes the villagers to...
