Chocolat

15 yrs 114 minutes 2016 7.3

The true story of Rafael Padilla, also known as Chocolat, the first black circus artist in France in the early 20th century. He met great success but also saw the dark side of fame in a world where he was never fully accepted because of his skin color. Sydsvenskan's Maria Krutmeijer gives it the grade four out of five and writes that: "The film makes us feel the violence and grief in this, but also the joy of artistry."
