Babettes gæstebud (Babette’s Feast / Le Festin de Babette), directed by Gabriel Axel, 1987 - starring Stéphane Audran, Bodil Kjer, Birgitte Federspiel - adapted from a Karen Blixen's short story


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.
