In a small old-fashioned French town, single-mother Vianne (Juliette Binoche) arrives with her six-year-old daughter, and opens up a chocolate shop.
Vianne creates some mouth-watering sweets which inspire the usually dull villagers to indulge their temptations and experience some true happiness.
But it is only when handsome stranger Roux (Johnny Depp) arrives in the village that Vianne begins to recognise her own desires.
Judi Dench won best supporting actress Oscar for her portrayal of Armande Voisin, the freethinking landlady.
