About the film:
Babette's Feast, 1987
Director: Gabriel Axel
In a remote 19th Danish century village two sisters lead a rigid life. Both had opportunities to leave the village, but their father objected in each case and they spent their lives caring for him. Many years later - their father is now deceased - they take in French refugee, Babette Hersant, who agrees to work as their servant. After winning the lottery, Babette wants to repay the sisters for their kindness and offers to cook a French meal for them and their friends on the 100th anniversary of their father's birth. It proves to be an eye-opening experience for everyone. IMDb
