CHOCOLAT, directed by Lasse Halström, takes place in rural France, in an isolated village overseen by the Comte de Reynaud (Alfred Molina), who makes sure everyone keeps to the straight and (very) narrow. Enter mysterious, red-cloaked Vianne (Juliette Binoche) and her daughter Anouk (Victoire Thivisol), who boldly open up a chocolate shop during Lent. Aghast, the Comte tries to keep customers away. But Vianne always seems to know just what people need, giving everyone the kind of chocolate they can't resist and improving the lives of her grumpy landlord Armande (Judi Dench), and the troubled Josephine (Lena Olin). When a group of itinerants dock their houseboats in town, Vianne befriends Roux (Johnny Depp), which proves too much for the Compte and his sidekick, Josephine's husband Serge. Both the Compte and Vianne have to confront near disaster and their own fears, and the village's young priest must find a way to become a true spiritual leader for the community.

Comfort movies are like comfort food — they’re what you turn to when you don’t want to be challenged, you just want to relax with an old favourite. And Chocolat complies: Chocolate is good. Love is nice. Sex is fun. Friends are treasures. Who could argue with that? Certainly not Halström, and he spends two hours reassuring us that life is good. More complicated than it has to be, sometimes, but good nevertheless.
