Product Overview

Merci Pour Le Chocolat, his 48th feature film, is vintage Claude Chabrol: intricate plots wend their way through the elegant homes of several well-heeled French-Swiss, in the environs of Lausanne, Switzerland. Isabelle Huppert stars as Mika, the culture-attired, oh-so-perfect head of a company that manufactures Swiss chocolate; Jacques Dutronc is Andre, her suave, concept pianist husband whose first wife died years ago in a mysterious car accident.

How is it that Andre's teenage son has no musical talent, while the stunning Heanne, who shares his birthday, is already a world-class pianist? And why does Huppert insist that everyone sip the hot chocolate she prepares so faithfully each evening? Chabrol has fashioned a delectable mystery, dipped in darkest Swiss chocolate.

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The appeal of Merci Pour le Chocolat is not in the somewhat creaky old poisoning plot, not in the hints of suppressed family secrets, not in the suspense about what will happen next--but in the enigma within which Huppert conceals her characters While all those around her plot, scheme, hope and fear, she simply looks on, and pours the chocolate. What is she thinking? What does she want? Who is she? Her appeal in film after film is maddening, perverse and seductive.
