“ Once upon a time…there was a quiet little village in the French countryside, whose people believed in tranquility. If you lived in this village, you understood what was expected of you, you knew your place in the scheme of things…and if you happened to forget, someone would help remind you. So through good times and bad…famine and feast…the villagers held fast to their traditions. Until one winter day…when a sly wind blew in from the north…”

I wish I could tell you this is just a love story but it’s not… it’s chocolate temptation that weakens the senses and brings to life our deepest desires.
Vianne Rocher seems to know the way to everybody’s buried secret wishes and she has only one way of doing it…chocolate.
Chocolate is the link between forgotten passion, unspoken feelings, desire for freedom and revealing destinies.
PS. Even today after watching it so many times, my love affair with chocolate still continues:)
