Chocolate icing dream factory

One of my childhood obsessive dreams was to break into a confectionery. The prospect of going to the correction school, as it would have been for a minor offender, was palmed in front of the temptation of trays with almonds, buckwheat, savarine, mascots, lightening, jofre and how many other goodies could be found in such an establishment. perdition.

Unlike me, Mr. Johnny Depp, whom I suspect of even more daring childhood visions, has set out to bring some of these to life for the benefit of his children. If in "Finding Neverland" he managed to revive the wonderful world of stories in a computer-dominated millennium, in "Charlie and the chocolate factory" dreams are much more palpable and much, much tastier.


What kid in this world wouldn't want a chocolate factory just for him?
In the movie, anything is possible. Fantastic stories with little little men drawn to indigo (oompa-loompa), who work day and night, are intertwined with modern marketing procedures and state-of-the-art technologies.
Did you know that chocolate, before being transformed into foil-coated tablets, flows in a liquid state through a riverbed and is sucked in by some giant tubes, after being "foamed" by a waterfall? And that the peanuts that enter the composition are peeled by specially trained squirrels or that the whiskey is mulched directly from the udders of cows beaten with tendon of oompa-loompa? Well, you had no place to know because all this is happening in one factory in the world, Willy Wonka's factory, where the best chocolate is made.
But no one knew this because, for several years, the factory had closed its doors after Willy discovered that the workers were selling secret recipes to the competition. Thus, it is easy to understand the curiosity of all and the worldwide hysteria arising when it was announced that five children, chosen by lottery, had the privilege of being, for one day, Wonka's guests.
And one of them, the luckiest, was to receive a special prize, which went beyond any imagination.
The story is with talc. Chocolate is made with love, as Juliette Binoche also taught us in "Chocolat". And only who really wants can be chosen.
There are five competitors, five typologies of children, and, even if the denomination is predictable, the events by which they are eliminated, in turn, the gurmand, spoiled, tupeista and minitehnicus are absolutely captivating because each one reveals a little secret of the magic recipe. to Willy.
Tim Burton had the highest quality raw material, the experience of the first version of the 1971 film and a magic ingredient: Johnny Depp. It turned out to be a delight of film, which is enjoyed with pleasure, piece by piece, and in the end you find yourself craving to see it again. A production not recommended for those who care about weight loss.
