Babette's Feast

Wikipedia says:

Babette's Feast (Danish: Babettes g├Žstebud) is a 1987 Danish film directed by Gabriel Axel. The film's screenplay was written by Gabriel Axel based on the story by Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen), who also wrote the story which inspired the 1985 Academy Award winning film Out of Africa. Produced by Just Betzer, Bo Christensen, and Benni Korzen with funding from the Danish Film Institute, Babette's Feast was the first Danish cinema film of a Blixen story. It was also the first Danish film to win the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.[1] The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival.[2]

I could say that this was the movie that moved me, hehehe... and made me start this blog. But then I realized that I always enjoy this kind of movies. Well aside from watching those cooking demo shows on cable TV, watching this kind of feature film really inspire and excites me to eat and watch some more movies...

The highlight of all the story after all was the preparation of a nice dinner that happened towards the end of the film. The plot of the story itself was interesting and unusual. Aside from being entertained I end up salivating with all the food that were prepared and served. Especially the remarks on the vintage wine and champagne was intoxicating hahahah...

For those of you who enjoy eating and watching movie this is a movie to enjoy. You should not miss it. Well should you want to read a review of the film check it here -'s_Feast
