At once a rousing paean to artistic creation, a delicate evocation of divine grace, and the ultimate film about food, the Oscar-winning Babette�s Feast is a deeply beloved cinematic treasure. Directed by Gabriel Axel and adapted from a story by Isak Dinesen, this is the layered tale of a French housekeeper with a mysterious past who brings quiet revolution in the form of one exquisite meal to a circle of starkly pious villagers in late nineteenth-century Denmark. Babette�s Feast combines earthiness and reverence in an indescribably moving depiction of pleasure that goes to your head like fine champagne. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES � New 2K digital film restoration, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition � New interview with actor St�phane Audran � Karen Blixen: Storyteller, a 1995 documentary about the author of the film�s source story, who wrote under the pen name Isak Dinesen � New visual essay by filmmaker Michael Almereyda � New interview with sociologist Priscilla Parkhurst Ferguson about the significance of cuisine in French culture � Trailer � PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Mark Le Fanu and Dinesen�s 1950 story

Are there any big questions of life left? If the meanings of success, fame, humility and service are still for some the big questions,
then Babette's Feast will always be a treasure for seekers to discover.
Love the portrayal of such "stark" lives -- the setting is stark -- and seeming to give up opportunities for earthly joy and love -- for the love of God (and how people seem to feel they "should" live to show their love of God). And then comes of feast ... which seems to show that participating in earthly joy CAN be akin to spiritual joy!!
Just LOVE this movie! (not going to say "cinema" or "film" -- i don't consider this for "highbrows"!) :) :) :)
