Director: Lasse Hallström

Chocolat (Lasse Hallström, 2000), starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp tells the story of a travelling mother (Vianne) and her daughter, who open a chocolaterie in a small French village. Opening during lent causes concern amongst the traditional villagers but the evocative scenes of French village life (filmed in Flavigny-sur-Ozerain in Burgundy and on the Dordogne River), delicious chocolates and the design of Vianne’s shop and kitchen will leave you hungry to recreate some of the ambience in your own kitchen.
