Blood and Chocolate Plot Synopsis:

In Bucharest, Romania, the orphan Vivian was raised by her aunt after losing her parents ten years ago in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado. Her family belongs to a bloodline of werewolves and Vivian is promised to the leader of the pack, Gabriel. When the American cartoonist Aiden, who is researching werewolves for his publisher for the next edition of his magazine, meets Vivian, they immediately fall in love for each other. However, the evil son of Gabriel and Vivian's cousin Rafe poisons Gabriel about the love of Vivian, forcing her to choose between her bounds with her family and her passion for Aiden.

Blood and Chocolate (2007) Review

Director Katja von Garnier brought us his werewolf movie Blood and Chocolate (2007) whose plot suggested it should be a romance film. Aside from having a horrible movie title, Blood and Chocolate did very little to keep me entertained during the movie.

Blood and Chocolate is about Vivian (Agnes Bruckner - Murder by Numbers (2002), The Woods (2006), Venom (2005)) who is a young teenage werewolf that must choose between two males. The first man named Aidan (Hugh Dancy - Hannibal TV series, King Arthur (2004)) who is human and the second is a werewolf named Gabriel (Olivier Martinez - S.W.A.T. (2003), Taking Lives (2004)).

The script seems to be the culprit here as it allows the actors only to do so much with it. No wonder the critics and many people disliked the film. The cast did the best with what they had, but it was not enough to hold my attention nor excitement. The use of werewolf mythology was interesting, but there were just too many plot holes and inconsistencies. For either werewolf movie fans or romance fans, both should put this film on the bottom of their list as it offers very little but to have said that you did watch it.
