Chocolat is an enchanting, moving and heart-warming tale of love and temptation, a big-budget movie with its roots in European art house cinema. Magical and almost fairytale-like in theme, it's the story of the mysterious Vianne and her arrival in a quiet, old-fashioned French town at the end of the 1950s. Gradually her attitude to life and the delicacies that she prepares in her chocolate shop have a marked effect on the local people, bound as they are by the twin forces of religion and politics. Juliette Binoche is perfect in the role of the sensuous, captivating Vianne--a masterstroke of casting matched by the performance of Judi Dench as the splendidly grumpy but ultimately inspiring matriarch Armande. Very much an ensemble piece, the whole cast are indeed excellent, with Johnny Depp (making a fair fist of an Irish accent) superb as the drifter Roux, the one man capable of unlocking Vianne's own desires. From its majestic opening swoop to the final, joyous scene, Lasse Hallström's film, based on the bestselling novel, is nothing short of a masterpiece. On the DVD: As befits such a film, the DVD is an elegant, well thought out package. The movie itself is a visual feast, a combination of a beautiful setting, rich, opulent colours and textures and a mystical atmosphere. There's a range of documentary features examining the style of the film and its background, as well as an audio commentary and some excellent scenes deleted from the final cut. More in-depth notes are to be found in the accompanying booklet and the whole thing adds up to one of the most satisfying DVD releases in a long time. In one of the accompanying documentaries, Depp wonders if it is possible to create art through cinema. It may be a difficult task, but Chocolat is proof that it can be done.--Phil Udell

382pages. poche. Poche. Lansquenet est un petit village au c?ur de la France où la vie s'écoule, paisible et immuable. L'arrivée d'une mystérieuse jeune femme, Vianne Rocher, et de sa fille, Anouk, va tout bouleverser. D'autant qu'elle s'avise d'ouvrir une confiserie juste en face de l'église, la veille du carême! Dans sa boutique, Vianne propose d'irrésistibles sucreries. Et beaucoup succombent à son charme et à ses friandises. Car le chocolat de Vianne soigne les espoirs perdus et réveille des sentiments inattendus. Tout cela n'est pas du goût du comte de Reynaud et du curé, convaincus tous deux que les douceurs de Vianne menacent l'ordre et la moralité. En tout cas, la guerre est déclarée. Deux camps vont s'affronter: les partisans des promesses célestes et ceux des délices terrestres.

Advantages: Tastes and smells delicious, on offer. Disadvantages: leave you feeling sick if you have to much
I just fancied a big bar of chocolate the other night so when I was out getting in a few bits, this was on offer and couldn?t resist, so it went into the basket. I have always loved the aero chocolate, especially when I was pregnant with my eldest son, mint aero chocolate and lilt was my cravings. The bars of chocolate was always just a bar, standard size but now they have bought...
Advantages: Improves the graphical quality of games, Cheaper than the official cable. Disadvantages: I suppose some people will unfairly compare the Wii and the 360/PS3 graphics and be disappointed?
...Having previously played my Wii on a regular old television I was more than happy with the graphics in game. However upon moving house and purchasing a Samsung LCD TV which is HD compatible, I figured buying a component cable couldn?t hurt and I had heard good things about its effect upon games. I did not have the money at the time to purchase the official Nintendo one, and when talking about it...
Advantages: Tastes nice, creamy texture, lots of uses Disadvantages: None
...I have always enjoyed baking with my daughter, however, my baking skills were pretty non existent when we started baking together so we were limited to what to make. We started off with cake mixes that you just add an egg to and the good old faithful rice crispy cakes. The chocolate we usually use when making rice crispy cakes is this one from Asda.
The Asda milk cooking chocolate is, of course...
