A little bit of cinema



Of course, chocolate could not leave the masters of the 7th art indifferent. Here's a list I got from imdb of all the TV and film work that has ever been made worldwide, according to the site, on the subject of chocolate. Or just films that have the word chocolate in their title.

Who doesn't know...

-Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory(1971) with Gene Wilder; a musical film adaptation of Roald Dahl's book "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory", a childhood favourite.
-Like Water for Chocolate (1992); an adaption of Mexican writer Laura Esquivel's book "Come agua para chocolate"
-Chocolat(2000) with Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche, based on a novel by Joanne Harris
-Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(2005) with Johnny Depp; a new adaptation of Roald Dahl's book.
