05 Jun Slow Food with Film – Chocolat
A very tasty highlight of the 2019 NOOSA alive! Festival is the ‘Slow Food with Film – Chocolat’ event, taking place on Monday 22 July from 6pm at Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort.
Chefs Aden Moriarty from Noosa Springs, Matt Golinski from Peppers and Lisa Mahar from Makepeace Island will create a three-course feast for the senses while you sit back and enjoy ‘Chocolat’, a most delicious comic fable and a celebration of difference.
‘Chocolat’ tells the story of a mysterious young mother, Vianne, who in 1959, arrives at the fictional, repressed French village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes with her six-year-old daughter and opens La Chocolaterie Maya, a small chocolaterie, across the square from the church. No one could have imagined the impact that she and her spirited daughter Anouk would have on the community stubbornly rooted in tradition. She and her chocolate quickly begin to influence the lives of the townspeople in very different and interesting ways. One of the first to fall under the spell of Vianne and her confections is Armande, her elderly, eccentric landlady. Her ability to perceive her customers’ desires and satisfy them with just the right confection, coaxes the villagers to abandon themselves to temptation — just as Lent begins.
Starring: Juliette Binoche, as Vianne; Judi Dench as Armande and Johnny Depp as Roux.
