Look At This

14 Feb

In Norway, people often said they were going to “look at” a movie instead of watch it. Just one of the many funny little translational blips. Anyway, I’ve been wanting to watch Chocolat lately. Maybe because I had a burst of culinary inspiration 5 minutes before my friends came over tonight and decided to make homemade chocolate peanut butter dipped pretzels, and felt like the beautiful heroine of the film for a split second. If you haven’t seen it, now’s the time. Perfect for Valentine’s Day and Lent (I know that sounds weird, but seriously). Gorgeous music, gorgeous people, lovely story. Look at it and tell me what you think!

    Wow, I love this movie. It’s avery beautiful one. Have recognised all the symbols that are used.

    The woman with her colorful dresses in red comes to this grey village with no joy. Her shop with all the “lustful” chocolate adds a wonderful contrast to this foggy village.

    She brings joy to this place and needs a lot of healing herself.

    I love this movie!
