Babette’s Feast
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Babette’s Feast, dir. Gabriel Axel, Denmark 1987, 103 min., Danish with English subtitles

In a small coastal town in 19th century Denmark, Babette, a French political refugee, seeks asylum in the house of the village pastor. The family offer Babette (played by Stéphane Audran, who also appears in The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie) shelter, taking her on as their housekeeper and cook. After the death of the pastor, his two daughters decide to hold a dinner on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Despite the sisters’ initial concerns, Babette presents the household with a magnificent feast, and her Parisian lust for life inspires and revives her two new companions in this culinary classic.
