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.

The opulent, sensual dinner scene at the end clashes with the grim danish austerity that permeates the rest of the film - I find this whole atmospheric stuff very well rendered. I agree that some of the dishes look "truly vile" as I've read in another comment here, some of them hurting my animal-friendly sensibilities (turtle soup, for one), but it's part of the movie experience that I try not to look at it that way (hell, this is no 'Cannibal Holocaust' after all...)

The feast, as depicted, is a tribute to both spiritual and humanist impulses. There is a lot to think about when one considers the stark beliefs of the puritans, the self-denial, and the appreciation that comes from an amazing experience made possible by the generosity of your neighbours.

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.

Probably the best of the food films. (No, that's not a joke. This actually is really good)

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.
