chocolat - the movie

Today a short post about movies. One of my favorite actors is Juliette Binoche and I love her style in the movie "Chocolat" which is set in the late 1950s. 

Juliette Binoche plays the role of Vianne Rocher, a chocolatier, who drifts across the country with her daughter Anouk. In the winter of 1959, they arrive in a small French village that closely adheres to tradition. 

Vianne opens a Chocolaterie just as the villagers begin the forty days of Lent, much to the dislike of the village's mayor. This and the fact that Vianne wears more provocative clothing, does not go to church, and has an illegitimate child, does not fit in well with the town's people narrow mind, but maybe with her friendly and alluring nature, she can win the villagers over.
