The birth of Death by Chocolate came with this idea: A challenge. We felt we needed to write a simple yet engaging story between two characters in one location.
The film has been screened all over the world in various prestigeous film festivals including the Los Angeles Independant Film Festival.
The very first version of the script was more related to the novel we got inspired from and the action would happen in a dinner. When we’ve decided to give this background the female character, that she would be this kind of faded fame from Hollywood, the dinner idea felt off. So we looked out for a cool, fancy and timeless restaurant.
We’ve also changed our mind about the music during the editing process. We thought having licensed music with this retro touch of jazz would increase tremendously the quality of the final result.
Nobody could eat the chocolate cakes we baked for the opening credits as we needed them for the following scenes! It was a bit frustrating as we were in a real restaurant during its closed days and the chef was amazingly skilled! It smelled chocolate all day of the first shooting day… It was kind of hard to focus!
