This is a lovely movie; we felt very sorry for the sisters, who seem to almost have no choice than to stay buried in this barren wasteland of a village. Their food is atrocious - salted fish and bland bread. Only Babette's presence adds a little spice to their culinary life. Contrast the scene where Babette makes their first meal, per their instructions, to the feast she later prepares - and the looks on the attendees faces as they sample these delicacies for the first (and possibly last) time in their lives.
Certainly a movie worth a viewing. We heartily recommend it. And here's a trailer to introduce you to the film:
Next week, we start a new festival of Hollywood movies.
