Overview

Adapted by Robert Nelson Jacobs from Joanne Harris's popular novel and directed by Lasse Hallström.


Driven by fate, Vianne drifts into a tranquil French village with her daughter Anouk (Victoire Thivisol, from Ponette) in the winter of 1959. Her newly opened chocolatérie is a source of attraction and fear, since Vianne's ability to revive the villagers' passions threatens to disrupt their repressive traditions. The pious mayor (Alfred Molina) sees Vianne as the enemy, and his war against her peaks with the arrival of "river rats" led by Roux (Depp), whose attraction to Vianne is immediate and reciprocal. Subplots involve a battered wife (Lena Olin), a village elder (Judi Dench), and her estranged daughter (Carrie-Anne Moss). Alfred Molina (born May 24, 1953) is a english actor of Spanish-Italian parentage, born in London. ...
