Babette's Feast (DVD)


This Oscar winning tale of everyday passion is a mouthwatering ode to the glory of food and life from one of cinema's true originals



- +

When Babette, a beautiful and mysterious French refugee, arrives in a remote Danish town, the tight-knit, puritanical community begrudgingly let her in, providing her with shelter and work. But after the town patriarch passes away and Babette insists on preparing a feast in his honour, a magical world of sensory revelations is thrown open to the villagers.

Evoking the work of other great Scandinavian directors such as Ingmar Bergman and Carl Theodor Dreyer, but with a uniquely joyous, exuberant touch, Babette's Feast won the 1988 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Gabriel Axel's film is a mouthwatering ode to the glory of life.
