“BABETTE’S FEAST” (aka Babettes Gaestebud). Good storytelling and great cinematography best enjoyed on a lazy Sunday afternoon with some nice cured meats, cheeses and punchy red wine-perfect.

Babette's Feast, winner of an Oscar for best foreign film, is one of favorite foreign film of all times. The cinematography is exceptional and acting and script is just fantastic. Babette, a French woman, shows up at a small Dutch village and seeks refuge. When they take her in, she prepares a feast that is beyond anyone has seen before. The poignant storyline really touches your heart and you appreciate the characters as you journey through the movie. Excellent.
Babette's Feast - In a remote 19th Danish century village two sisters lead a rigid life centered around their father, the local minister, and their church. Both had opportunities to leave the village: one could have married a young army officer and the other, a French opera singer. Their father objected in each case and they spent their lives caring for him. Many years later - their father is now deceased - they take in French refugee, Babette Hersant, who agrees to work as their servant.
Babette's Feast (1987) Babette, a 19th century French refugee arrives in Jutland to serve as housekeeper for two pious sisters. They and the entire village are unaware that she is actually a world renowned chef.
