A FESTIVE FEAST: Our delicious holiday season celebrating food on film.

When Babette, a beautiful, 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 Ingmar Bergman and Carl Theodor Dreyer, but with a uniquely joyous, exuberant touch, this 1988 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film-winning 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.
