How I could have missed this classic for so long time is beyond belief. But the Danish Oscar winner is every bit as compelling and beautifully made as one could have hoped for. Not as touching as the following Oscar winner, Peller erobreren, though.

Not awful, but predictable and unsatisfying. Chocolat might be something of a rip-off of this film, but I find it much more charming and likable. The dominant feeling I had during Babette's Feast was that it lacked authenticity. Everything felt staged and predestined, and the period recreation didn't ring true either. The photography was pretty, but only in a postcard sort of way. Also, some of the dishes Babette prepares look truly vile.

The best food movie I've ever seen. It's mostly about creation from nothingness and the asceticism sometimes taken up as a means to pursue other, more strongly perceived notions of success. Solid performances all around and a great film for music as well. Beautiful cinematography.

Makeup is fantastic at aging the characters, but that's about all the praise I can give this. It's not often that a film can be both a sprawling mess as well as utterly simplistic and mundane, but this film manages it by taking paper thin characters, doing nothing with them, and cutting up the sequencing of events. It drags everywhere and it doesn't even seem to have a purpose.

I didn't think I'd enjoy this as much as I did. The first half is rather stilted and possibly a bit lost in translation. But seeing the people find joy through good food and good booze was heartwarming.

Good lord is this a slow movie. Perhaps it was trying to truly convey the slow life in a slow town in a slow society, but why torture your viewers? Also, it is all too easy to question the climax and why the characters do what they do--but the picture frustratingly asks none of the questions the viewer is dying to have it ask. This results in an ultimately unsatisfying production that is hard to recommend.

A celebration of art and the artist, but also an autumnal meditation on the nature of life itself, how--although we seldom get what we desire--we often receive compensation for our losses in strange, marvelous ways.

The storytelling during the "how" parts gets mired in prolonged flashbacks, and turns for help to an intrusive and overly necessary narrator. It affords you, through all of that, plenty of time to wish anew that there were an accepted format for cinematic works shorter than feature-length. But the feast itself and the buildup to it are ample rewards for toughing it out.
