Original Title:

Babette’s Feast

Oscar winning adaptation of Isak Dinesen’s story of a 19th-century French cook who spends her lottery winnings on a banquet for the ageing Danish sisters who sheltered her. Impeccably mounted and played, this is gastro-cinema at its most sensual and intoxicating.

Still good enough to eat.
