Chocolate: one taste is all it takes

Chocolate: in this film of Lasse Hallström Vianne and her daughter Anouk move into a small catholic French village. From the first scene on it is clear that Vianne Rocher is a Goddess. Her ancestry is from the old Mayan tribe that knew about the ways of healing with chocolate.


Chocolate: one taste is all it takes…

Did you know that there is a Mayan chocolate Goddess of fertility? Ixcacao. This Goddess lived among the people and listen to their needs. Look how Vianne listens to her customers. But Ixcacoa was not blessed for long. She had to marry the God of commerce. Patriarchical Kings demanded that a child would be sacrificed each year to ensure the return of the sun. Ixcacoa climbed up the stairs with them each year to make the path to death easier by feeding them chocolate on their way up to their fate. In the film, this plot is reversed. the crown, grandmother Armande (Judi Dench) sacrifices herself. She throws a party were Vianne cooks the most lovely chocolate dinner. But being a diabetic she does not survive. Her sacrifice is the key that turns things around. Vianne becomes a Matriarch, a Queen. She is finally able to restore her independence and settle down. But not only the Goddess/anima part is represented in a magnificent way. The animus is displayed in all its forms: Roux as the puer, the wandering fool; Comte de Reynaud as the enforcer of the rules and Serge, the irresponsible dronk. All of the males desperately need to connect with their anima. The sacrifice of Armande triggers a turning point in their lives… Are you a chocolate lover yourself? After seeing this film you want to make your own healing recipes: chocolate covered Katie is the lady who knows how to make chocolate that heals. Over 80 recipes that are good for you.
