Description

Artistic, sensual and sacred passions unite in Babette's Feast. Written and directed by Gabriel Axel from a short story by Out Of Africa's Isak Dinesen, this Oscar-winning film offers an irresistable mixture of dry wit and robust humanity. On the desolate coast of Denmark live Martina and Philippa, the beautiful daughters of a devout clergyman who preaches salvation through self-denial. Both girls sacrifice youthful passion to faith and duty, and even many years after their father's death they keep his austere teachings alive among the townspeople.

But with the arrival of Babette (Stephane Audran), a mysterious refugee from France's civil war, life for the sisters and their tiny hamlet begins to change. Soon, Babette has convinced them to try something truly outrageous - a gourmet French meal. Her feast of course scandalises the local elders. Just who is this strangely talented Babette, who has terrified this pious town with the prospect of losing their souls for enjoying too much earthly pleasure?
