Chocolat, Mon Amour

A film by Christophe Fraipont

Chocolat mon amour is a taste tantalizing celebration of the world of chocolate. Featuring interviews with some of the finest Belgian and French chocolatiers in Brussels and Paris, Chocolat mon amour tells the story of how chocolate, originally a luxury item reserved for the aristocracy and haute bourgeoisie, became an everyday delicacy in Europe, accessible to all, even in its most sophisticated and deluxe form, the Belgian praline. The film evokes the sensuality and passion of chocolate, and the never-ending quest of generations of chocolatiers to develop new flavors and fillings.
