In a small coastal town in 19th century Denmark, Babette (Stéphane Audran), a French political refugee, seeks asylum in the house of the village pastor. The family offer Babette shelter, taking her on as their housekeeper and cook. After the death of the pastor, his two daughters, Philippa and Martina, decide to hold a dinner on the occasion of their father’s 100th birthday. Despite the sisters’ initial concerns, Babette presents the household with a magnificent feast, and her Parisian lust for life inspires and revives her two new companions in this ‘culinary’ classic.
