Chocolat is a beautiful romantic drama film based on the novel by Joanne Harris. It tells the story of a chocolatier Vianne Rocher (Juliette Binoche) who along with her young daughter, moves to a quiet French village and sets up her chocolate shop there, much to the displeasure of the village Mayor who finds Vianne's outgoing character not confirming to the traditions of the village. Vianne, on the other hand starts winning people over through her delicious chocolates intimately mixed with her friendliness and desire to help others. She further breaks the customs of the village by falling in love with Traveller Roux (Johnny Depp)  who is a part of a band of gypsies that arrive to camp at the outskirts of this little French town.

The movie has a sweet ending and for all you heart-centered folks out there, I highly recommend watching it!
