" Thank you for chocolate is a film about the pain of not having access to the pleasure of doing what you do." Isabelle Huppert
In the comfortable comfort of Switzerland, a young pianist, Jeanne, learns by chance that she was almost exchanged at birth with Guillaume, son of a virtuoso pianist of international renown, André Polonski. She takes the opportunity to introduce herself to the latter who makes her his pupil. The large Polonski residence is dominated by the benevolent figure of Marie-Claire, heiress of Muller chocolates. Jeanne comes to doubt this benevolence as the innocence of the chocolate that Marie-Claire carefully prepares for the whole family...
"How condemnable is the evil?" To what extent is it not? People are not naturally evil. If they become so, it's because they can't help it, because they need it to survive. Mika can't do otherwise, since she doesn't exist. That's his problem. That's the subject, then I have fun scattering little pebbles so that we can follow him, like Tom Thumb. – Claude Chabrol
