Product Description

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

A more unlikely dinner party is impossible to imagine. Babette's Feast touches the heart at every turn and and the main character's extraordinary generosity inspires viewers to consider the role that food and love and other pleasures can play in our lives. Arriving out of nowhere at a small village on the coast of Denmark, Babette is taken in and provided a place to stay and a way to connect and serve the community, which adheres to very strict and severe religious precepts. She humbly accepts lessons in how to prepare plain and frankly disgusting looking dish made of beer and bread and deliver it to the village's poor and sick. The extreme austerity of those living around her and their determination to avoid sensual enjoyments presents a serious challenge to the newcomer whose genuine skill as a top chef becomes clear to us as the film progresses. The performances are strong, the setting is compelling, and the meal -- when it finally comes to the table, will have your mouth watering for the delectable treats set out.

In spite of what is mentionned on the Amazon Website as for the spoken language options of this DVD (Danish, French & Norwegian), the sole language available is Danish. For this reason, I gave only two stars to Amazon. As for the movie itself, I wouldn't hesitate to give a 5 stars.

Think i've seen this 10 or 20 times over the years. One of my "go to" feel good films (like Enchanted April). Beautifully filmed.
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"!) :) :) :)

The explanation of the plot was insightful and illuminated the story in a very meaningful manner. The actual story was superbly and simply told and the acting was superlative. This is a low key drama which holds one's attention with its attention to detail. The whole story was believable and one felt a connection with the players.

Oui tout fut parfait. Cette saga est magnifique.
Images, sons, interviews avec le cinéaste, actrice principale: Stéphane Audran.
J'aivais déjà vu ce film deux fois au cinéma, je le reverrai volontiers.
Le transport, l'emballage furent très bien.
