Vianne arrives in an idyllic French village and sets up a chocolate shop, soon her recipes are melting the hearts and inhibitions of the villagers, much to the annoyance of the ultra-conservative Mayor, who fears for their souls. The arrival of a gypsy, Roux, kindles desires within Vianne herself and as romance blossoms, battle commences within the village. Chocolat is a very sweet and whimsical drama that uses some fine actors and a lot of beautifully lit photography, but it's a slight tale and lacking real passion; Try 'Like Water For Chocolate',' Eat Drink Man Woman', or 'Babette's Feast' if you fancy your food with some real heart and soul.
