BABETTE'S FEAST (Babttes Gaestebud)

When Babette, a beautiful and mysterious French refugee, arrives in a remote Danish town the tight-knit, puritanical community begrudgingly let her in, providing her with shelter and work.
But after the town patriarch passes away and Babette insists on preparing a feast in his honour, a magical world of sensory revelations is thrown open to the villagers, changing their lives forever…

Evoking the work of other great Scandinavian directors such as Bergman and Dreyer, but with a uniquely joyous, exuberant touch, this tale of everyday passion - of the human capacity to create and to love - is a mouthwatering ode to the glory of life from one of cinema's true originals.
