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.

Rotten: Suffers from disparate elements.

Rotten: If this movie were part of an assortment in a chocolate box, I wouldn't spit it into my napkin. But I wouldn't reach for it a second time, either.

This always makes me want to eat chocolate. Yum. Johnny Depp helps with that... yum.

Brilliant movie, brilliant cast, and brilliant story blends with a tempting taste from all the chocolates into a great movie named 'Chocolat'... Juliette Binoche delivers a great performance as Vianne who try to keep her mother's secret recipes by travelling with her daughter from place to place until she arrives in a small and unfriendly French village for her... The other cast did a great job too, Lena Olin, Alfred Molina, Johnny Depp, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Judi Dench, and they're all deserved at least a nominee... But unfortunately only Judi Dench who got it because yes she is hard to resist... Overall it's a really tempting movie about chocolates, wrapped with a great story and great music too...

I thought this was gonna be a dumb romance, but this movie was really good. The true great thing is the music, the score was perfect if you ask me. I think they could've made the town brighter and more colorful if you get what im saying. The acting was great, and deserved more recognition. The plot was well done and fun. This was a very good movie, and I wish you see it.
