Babette's Feast

This is a beautiful and simple film based on a book by Danish author Isak Dinesen.  It is a Dutch film about a cook/servant who wins the lottery and treats her homeowners and friends to a wonderful home cooked meal.  It shows that preparing food, sharing a meal and sharing company are love.

This trailer is sort of old, but this discussion by New York Times critic A.O. Scott is a fantastic dissection of the film.  So, I hope you enjoy this film!  Food is love.
