Monsieur Chocolat

The Smash Hit Of The French Film Festival

Omar Sy stars in the French-Language film, MONSIEUR CHOCOLAT which is based on the life of Rafael Padilla - a former Cuban-born slave, who became a performer in France during the Belle Epoque era.

Padilla was born in Cuba in 1868 and was sold into slavery at the age of 9, to a Portuguese merchant. After escaping slavery, he traveled to Paris and launched a career in the circus, captivating the French with his talents as a singer and dancer, and as a clown, working under the stage name 'Chocolat'.

"Omar Sy is absolutely outstanding, poignant, convincing. He is a true actor, deserving an Academy Award for his performance." - Guenot Philippe

"A story that slowly drifts away from the joyful tone it starts with to become the sad tale of a man who had everything and lost it." - Sensacine

"Lavish and increasingly involving study of fin-de-siècle racism." - Guardian
