An undisputed classic of gastronomic cinema is back, in a restored and digitalized print. The film is based on a novel by Isaak Dinesen and starring Stéphane Audran. In an isolated village in Denmark, dominated by Puritanism, two spinsters nostalgically recall their distant youth and the rigid upbringing that forced them to pass up their chance at happiness. When Babette appears from Paris, fleeing the Terror, this will change their lives. The newcomer will have the chance to repay the kindness and warmth with which she is received by organising an opulent meal with the very best dishes and wines that French cuisine can offer.
