Chocolate(2000) is the epitome of disney-fied fluff as you would get from a foreign film. Like the Brendan Fraiser version of the Mummy is a disney-fied version of The orignal Mummy with Boris Karloff. It just doesn't work.
Can you even believe this film was nominated for Best Picture and Best Actress, thank goodness for Ridley Scott's Gladiator and the potty-mouth Julia Roberts in Erin Brokovich to save us from this wretched film. It was supposed to be set in France, WHY are they speaking English with a hint of a British accent. They do this in all the American films set in non-us place. Examples: Ever Aver with Drew Barrymore, and An Affair of the Necklace with Hilary Swank.
