the winter of the witch/chocolate too similar for words...? i think not!
17 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

i remember the first time i thought of this film that many so fondly remember (incluing me)from their early elementary school years of the late 1960's through early 1970's... it was 2001 ish... when i was watching the movie... "chocolate." as i watched this film i thought to myself... this film is very much (in many respects) like that film i used to see in elementary school. the earlier film being a quite a bit more simplistic though. the pancakes made people happy... and the chocolate in the other film made people confront their fears. remember the witch even talked about fear in the first film... very similar. also the mom and boy move to the town and open the pancake parlor... they clean up the place. and in the later film the mom and her little girl move to a new town and clean up the shop and open the chocolate shop. yes... there are way too many similarities to be a coincidence... does anyone agree with me?
