Film: Ba­bette’s Feast

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

(be­low) is a Dan­ish movie, sub­ti­tled in English, set in a ru­ral 19th Cen­tury vil­lage. Two older sis­ters who lead a sim­ple pu­ri­tan life de­cide to take in a French refugee, Ba­bette Her­sant, against their neigh­bours’ ad­vice. Ba­bette agrees to work as their ser­vant. Af­ter win­ning the lottery, Ba­bette wants to re­pay the sis­ters for their kind­ness and of­fers to cook a lav­ish French meal for them. It is a story of friend­ship, hu­man en­deav­our and kind­ness. It is hard to beat a good old story. I also love ac­tion movies where you

don’t have to think.
