Chocolat (2000)

Directed by
Lasse Hallström

Released in 2000, this romantic comedy drama, directed by Lasse Hallström and adapted from the novel by Joanne Harris, picked up five Oscar nominations.

When single mother Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche, pictured) and her six-year-old daughter move to rural France and open a chocolate shop - with Sunday hours - across the street from the local church, they are met with scepticism and some loathing. But as soon as they coax the townspeople into enjoying their delicious products, they are warmly welcomed, especially by the town's wives. And when river gypsy Johnny Depp (pictured) turns up, passions are inflamed everywhere...

Apart from some dodgy Franglais accents, it's delightful.
