Super cute and romantic!

Really, truly Fabulous film. Yeah, in my opinion, it was Alfred Molina's superb acting which really made this film, but it was also helped on by all the rest of the actors in the film. Binoche and the girl who played her child were wonderful. It was really a thoughtfully produced and crafted film, with all the final touches looked after.
It looked like Johnny Depp had the easiest time of acting in the film, he didn't provide much of a chemistry, his acting "force" was rather weak, but it worked for the small role he played (in it). All in all, meaningful, sensuous, sultry film, about the meaning of Life and the Importance of Pleasure!!! :)

Entertaining in a worldly sort of way. Fabulous cast.

I saw this movie some years ago. Now that I've visited the town in which this movie was shot in, I'm going to check it out again. And you do need chocolat when watching this moving.

Boring, predictable and bland. Johnny Depp is creepy as he is in all his movies. Forgettable.

one of my all time favourites!! Watch it every year at least once. Watch it with chocolate in hand.(a must)

On my first viewing, Leslie Caron was still so mesmerizing, that I had to watch it over to get into the story. On each repeated visit I found something else of interest. One of those films I can watch annually and enjoy it every time.

A beautiful character study, wonderfully cast, and magical. One of those rare movies that really gets inside and lifts the spirits.

One of my favourite movies, part allegory, part romance, and a little bit surreal. Rich visuals, especially the birthday party. Prepare to be hungry.

Wonderful! The entire plot line was interesting and enticing and you really felt for the characters. Johnny Depp, of course, performed his role beautifully. Definitely recommend it!
