When a strong north wind blows through a small French town, it brings the vivacious and mysterious Vianne (an unwed mother) and her young daughter, Anouk. Declining to go to church and opening a chocolate shop during Lent, Vianne delights some and horrifies others. An intelligent, enjoyable, romantic and exquisitely filmed fable.
Stars Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Alfred Molina, Johnny Depp.
