Plot – The story begins in Lansquenet, a small village in France, where time seems to have stopped a hundred years ago. During an ordinary day, the wind from the North brings Vianne Rocher and her daughter Anouk. The young woman just arrived in town opens a sinful chocolate shop full of tempting boxes that stir the secret and stifled appetite of the citizens. People slowly surrender to the temptations thanks to her magic powers, with which she immediately understands the citizens’ desires, preparing so customized boxes for them. After a short time, Vianne becomes famous.

  • Satan wears many guises. At times, he is the singer of a lurid song you hear on the radio. At times, the author of a salacious novel. The quiet man in the schoolyard, asking your children if he might join their game...and at times, the maker of sweet things, mere trifles, for what could seem more harmless, more innocent, than chocolate?”

    Hugh O'Conor - Father Henri
  • “We can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do. By what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create... and who we include.”
    Hugh O'Conor - Father Henri
