Louize edited the summary of Chocolat Thursday, June 10, 2010.
A woman named Vianne moves into the small French village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, and opens a chocolaterie. During Lent, when the villagers are expected by Françoise Reynaud, the village curate, to abstain from the pleasures of the flesh, they find that they are tempted by Vianne's confectionery. Reynaud attempts to have Vianne run out of town. Vianne, however plans a "Grand Festival of Chocolate," to be held on Easter Sunday.
