Babette's Feast - 1987 film directed by Gabriel Axel in a Criterion Collection two disc remake.  In this classic film, during the late 19th century, a strict religious community in a Danish village takes in a French refugee from the Franco-Prussian War as a servant to the late pastor's daughters.  At once a rousing paean to artistic creation, a delicate evocation of divine grace and the ultimate film about food. Stars Stéphane Audran, Bodil Kjer and Birgitte Federspiel. In Danish, French and Swedish with optional English subtitles, 104 minutes. Disc two has new interviews with the director Gabriel Axel and actor Stéphane Audran, a documentary about the author of the film's source story, who wrote under the pen name Isak Dinesen and MORE.
