Adapted from Joanne Harris' novel, Chocolat unfolds 'once upon a time' in a tranquil French village where sexy unwed single mother Vianne (Binoche) opens up a chocolaterie during Lent. Her magical confections are soon having a liberating effect on various locals, though her actions incur the wrath of the reigning count (Alfred Molina), who fears that the traditional order may be irrevocably damaged. Unfortunately, Hallström's (The Cider House Rules) feelgood fairytale relies on its calculatedly cosmopolitan cast and glossy production values to disguise its lack of substance.
