French-set romantic fable starring Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche, from the director of What's Eating Gilbert Grape. A mother and daughter move to a small French town where they open a chocolate shop. The town, religious and morally strict, is against them as they represent free-thinking and indulgence. When a group of Boat Gypsies floats down the river, the prejudices of the Mayor lead to a crisis.

With the minor cavil that this is one of those films in which players of all nationalities speak English with slight French accents, this is a treat. it's a rare showcase for the wonderful Binoche.
