Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Chocolat (2000)

Directed by Lasse Hallström

Starring Alfred Molina, Carrie-Anne Moss, Aurelien Parent Koenig, Antonio Gil


Similar to the sensual food drama Like Water for Chocolate. It’s OK, but the story is just not interesting enough to move this slowly. I had a hard time figuring out when it takes place.

Molina is good, Depp is obviously good. His first turn as an accented pirate is successful. This is probably his best-looking appearance. How nice that he doesn’t appear in the opening credits.

Regrettably, Pantoufle was a wallaby, not a kangaroo.
