One of the great auteurs of cinema, Claire Denis marked her arrival with this breathtaking, semi-autobiographical masterpiece. Starring arthouse favorite Isaach de Bankolé, Chocolat sees Denis exhibit her characteristic eye for landscapes and male physicality amid the power dynamics of colonialism.
