No, not the one with Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche.

Chocolate is a movie directed by Prachya Pinkaew (the same guy we have to thank for making Ong Bak) about an autistic girl with a penchant for martial arts. It may sound ridiculous, but look at the trailer. Just look, I tell you!

It's all mellow, and lifetimey, till about 1:15 minutes in, and then she starts kicking and elbowing anything that moves and letting the bodies it the floor.

And even if it wasn't awesome, I think the publicity lines alone would make me want to see it: "A special needs girl with a special need to kick ass"? If that isn't poetry, I don't know what is.

i thought it was about some ninja cleaning woman or something!

Whoever sees and appreciates names like tarantino (yeah yeah, I used him as example cos it reminded me of Kill Bill, so what?!), this seems perfectly capable of entertaining, in a brainless though hilarious way.
