Babette’s Gaestebud (Babette’s Feast)
Denmark/France, 1987 Dir. Gabriel Axel
Exiled following the 1871 Paris uprisings, Chef de Cuisine Babette comes to live in a rough Danish coastal town where she is taken in by two devout spinster sisters. Then she decides to blow all her lottery winnings on a massive feast for the entire village…So runs the central plot but it is the twists and turns that make this oscar winner (Best Foreign Picture) a must-see. Look out for cameo performances by Bergman regulars Bibi Andersson and Jarl Kulle.
