Stephane Audran, Bodil Kjer, Birgitte Federspiel, Jarl Kulle, Jean Philippe Lafont, Bibi Andersson.
With the mysterious arrival of Babette, a refugee from France's civil war, life for two pious sisters and their tiny hamlet begins to change. Before long, Babette has convinced them to try something other than boiled codfish and ale bread-- a gourmet French meal! Her feast scandalizes the elders, except for the visiting General. Just who is this strangely talented Babette, who has terrified this pious town with the prospect of losing their souls for enjoying too much earthly pleasure?
DVD ; all area code,widescreen
Babette's arrival is abrupt and not well explained. She is like a magical outside figure arriving in their midst, and taking refuge in their kitchen. She serves loyally and dutifully, even when she has a chance to change her situation, she does not. Instead, she gives the sisters something magical and unforgettable, something special and luxurious. She has known success and fame, as the sisters never have, but she gives them a taste of the world, before they all settle back into their everyday simplicity.
