The guest, a General at the Swedish court, is not related to the sister, but, as a callow young man, was in love with her, but chose his military career over happiness with her. His aunt is a member of the religious community. He is the one who, unknowingly, identifies Babette as the famous chef from Paris' "Cafe Anglais," and provides the catalyst for the enjoyment of the feast.
With a strong Bergman influence, namely from Fanny & Alexander, Gabriel Axel creates a feature that highlights its delicious looking meal as well as it does the characters eating the meal. With a sharp dose of comedy, as well as the harrowing story of the titular character, the largely plotless Babette's Feast is a beautiful study of characters and life in a late 1800's Danish village.
Esta cocinera francesa que alegra la vida a las austeras señoras danesas es realmente una delicia.

A visual feast with meaning that will take me some time to digest!
"Babette's Feast" is a great film. A strange mix of Scandinavian drama and food fetish showcase. All of it wonderful. Along with "Cinema Paradiso" and "La Femme Nikita", it was one of the rare foreign films that could be found at most video rental stores back in the day.
a rare film.. and one of my favorites, ever.. it's a visual poem.. beautiful, just beautiful
