The Foreign Film Group – ‘Babette’s Feast’, (Denmark, 1987)

About the film:
Beautiful but devoutly religious sisters Martine and Philippa grow to spinsterhood under the wrathful eye of their strict pastor father on the forbidding and desolate coast of Jutland, until one day, Philippa’s former suitor sends a Parisian refugee named Babette to serve as the family cook. Babette’s lavish celebratory banquet tempts the family’s dwindling congregation, who abjure such pleasures as fine foods and wines.
