Memorable Monologue: Chocolat

"Once upon a time, there was a quiet little village in the French countryside, whose people believed in Tranquilité - Tranquility. If you lived in this village, you understood what was expected of you. You knew your place in the scheme of things. And if you happened to forget, someone would help remind you. In this village, if you saw something you weren't supposed to see, you learned to look the other way. If perchance your hopes had been disappointed, you learned never to ask for more. So through good times and bad, famine and feast, the villagers held fast to their traditions. Until, one winter day, a sly wind blew in from the North..."

~ Tatyana Yassukovich as The Storyteller in Chocolat (2000)

Great movie.
The scene where the guy passed out in the window display with all the chocolate...classic.
Of course, I probably would have done the same thing.
