“In Lausanne, the aspirant pianist Jeanne Pollet (Anna Mouglalis) has lunch with her mother Louise Pollet (Brigitte Catillon), her boyfriend Axel (Mathieu Simonet) and his mother. Jeanne leans that when she was born, a nurse had mistakenly told to the prominent pianist André Polonski (Jacques Dutronc) that she would be his daughter. André has just remarried his first wife, the heiress of a Swiss chocolate factory Marie-Claire u0026quot;Mikau0026quot; Muller (Isabelle Huppert) and they live in Lausanne with Andréu0026#39;s second marriage son Guillaume Polonski (Rodolphe Pauly). u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOut of the blue, Jeanne visits André and he offers to give piano classes to help her in her examination. Jeanne becomes closer to André and visits him every day; sooner she discovers that Mika might be drugging her stepson with Rohypnol. Further, she might have killed Andréu0026#39;s second wife Lisbeth.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Merci pour le Chocolatu0026quot; is another ambiguous film by Claude Chabrol about evilness, alienation and manipulation. Isabelle Huppert, who is one of Chabrolu0026#39;s favoriteu0026#39;s actresses, performs a wicked lady. The essence of her evil is not explained, but she is capable to drug and kill her best friend and incapable to love or donate to help children. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eJeanne Pollet is manipulative and greedy, and uses the incident in the maternity hospital to get closer to André. When she sees the photo of Lisbeth in the bedroom, she returns to the pianos room where André is and puts her hands on her face exactly the same way Lisbeth did. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAndré Polonski is alienated and lives his life in the world of music, and doping to sleep and ignoring to see what Mika did to Lisbeth. They live a hypocrite life with Guillaume, who does not have any objective in life.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis film is not among the best works of Claude Chabrol, but anyway it is entertaining. My vote is seven.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTitle (Brazil): u0026quot;A Teia de Chocolateu0026quot; (u0026quot;The Chocolate Cobwebu0026quot;)”
