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.
