Film review: Chocolat

 Film review:

Chocolat is a movie from 2000 starring Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche. It's a drama and a romance movie.

It's about a woman named Vianne who moves to a French village with her daughter in 1959. She opens a chocolate shop (Chocolaterie) where she makes and sells all kinds of chocolates, from chocolate cake to hot chocolate.
They're not exactly welcomed with open arms, since they're both atheists, and most people in the village are Christian.
She meets her love interest, Roux, when he and his crew sail to the village and decide to stay there for a bit.

I liked the film, but I probably wouldn't watch it again. I liked most of the characters, but I disliked that Roux was barely in it.
I recommend watching it, but you shouldn't watch it with and empty stomach, because you'll get hungry from all the chocolate showed in the film.

Film review:

Chocolat is a film about drama and romance. It's set in a small french village called Flavigny-sur-Ozerain in the year 1959. It tells the story of Vianne and her daughter Anouk. They moved on to the village and opened up a chocolate shop, which caused the alteration of the morality of the community. 

Vianne is a kind woman who gives chocolate to the residents. The chocolate is so unique that people go again and buy more because of the effect that it makes on them. Josephine is an unlucky woman who is helped by Vianne and she works on the chocolate shop together. Roux is a handsome pirate who arrives in the village and he is attracted to Vianne. Armande is the grandmother of Luck and she goes frequently to the chocolate shop. People try to kick Vianne out of the village. But she continues making chocolate. She was going to leave the village but finally she stayed. 

From my point of view, I liked the meaning of the film because I saw myself reflected in Vianne. Also, I liked the acting. I heartily recommend it.
