Babette’s Feast (1987)

Jules: Do we deceive ourselves when we attempt to distinguish the sacred from the carnal? A small film made in a small village in a small (for Scandinavia) country seeks answers, as do we.

David: When a fortress of encrusted ascetic piety and propriety suffers an unexpected incursion of fabulous french cuisine, something more than its inhabitants’ impoverished taste buds cracks open. Rather than the conflict against which the god-fearing community steels itself, Babette’s state-of-the-art feast triggers a cathartic synthesis of sensory and spiritual joy, to the great elevation of all concerned.
