Nothing like Johnny Depp dipped in Chocolat to celebrate the weekend! Sweet pirate of dessert!! This millennium classic mixes the best things in life - Johnny, chocolate, France, and wily pirates with hot braided hair... sigh... but I digress. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this classic tale of romance and defiance, it's about a woman and her daughter who open a chocolate shop in a small French village and shake up the rigid morality of the community. Then, of course, Johhny Depp, the pirate captain arrives, and hot, subtle romance ensues.
Aside from the yumminess of Johnny's toned physique and well-groomed hair, I'm always amazed at how this movie sends me running to the chocolate bar or cake. The art behind the making of the chocolate is so alluring and elegant. I love how every piece of chocolate evokes a different feeling. Vianne (the main character) has a circular plate that she spins, and whatever image you see in the plate dictates a particular kind of chocolate you will like. Of course, Vianne can guess everyone's favorite at first guess except for Johnny's because he's so original and mysterious! Sigh. Curl up with this instant classic and let its goodness melt in your mouth! YUMMM!!!
