Beautiful and inscrutable – at once a spiritual parable and a heartfelt celebration of gourmet food.  Babette’s Feast is remarkable for its chilly landscapes, its wry and gentle humor, and its generous, melancholy spirit.  The wisdom and simplicity of the film seem to come from another time – a time when suffering could ennoble, when privation had its rewards, and when God could always be found in the unlikeliest places.
