Chocolat-[cheryl's Chocolate Challenge] - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

[The most tempting of all sweets becomes the key weapon in a battle of sensual pleasure versus disciplined self-denial in this comedy. In 1959, a mysterious woman named Vianne (Juliette Binoche) moves with her young daughter into a small French village, where much of the community's activities are dominated by the local Catholic church. A few days after settling into town, Vianne opens up a confectionery shop across the street from the house of worship - shortly after the beginning of Lent. While the townspeople are supposed to be abstaining from worldly pleasures, Vianne tempts them with unusual and delicious chocolate creations, using her expert touch to create just the right candy to break down each customer's resistance. With every passing day, more and more of Vianne's neighbors are succumbing to her sinfully delicious treats, but the Comte de Reynaud (Alfred Molina) , the town's mayor, is not the least bit amused; he is eager to see Vianne run out of town before she leads the town into a deeper level of temptation. Vianne, however, is not to be swayed, and with the help of another new arrival in town, a handsome Irish Gypsy named Roux (Johnny Depp) , she plans a 'Grand Festival of Chocolate, ' to be held on Easter Sunday. Based on the novel by Joanne Harris, Chocolat features a distinguished supporting cast, including Judi Dench, Lena Olin, Carrie-Anne Moss, Peter Stormare, Hugh O'Conor, and Leslie Caron. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi]-Wikipedia

You dragged me to France
That wonderful film
'Chocolat'
Joanne Harris's novel
Screen play by Robert Nelson Jacobs
Lasse Hallstrom's direction
Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench
Alfred Molina, Johnny Depp and a lot!
A woman and her daughter
Opened a chocolate shop
in a small French village
That shakes up the rigid
morality of the community..........................?
Thanks Cheryl! I am writing this while dreaming
of that chocolate shop.
Life is a Movie....................isn't it?
