Cult - Babette's Feast review by JD

Spoiler Alert
13/05/2015

If you've enjoyed Transformers 1, 2, 3, and 4 and look forward to 5, 6, 7, and 8 this is not for you. If you prefer the way-off mainstream, cult film you have hit solid gold. This is a slow moving bleak story about repressed emotion, Lutherian purity, poverty, and thwarted passion in a rural remote Danish coastal village set during the French revolution. I enjoyed some of the scenes in a sober and settled sort of way. Most of it however is about love which will never be realised or allowed, be it love of cooking, or of a woman. This should have a 40 certificate, few under 40 will enjoy it, some over 50 will really like it.

Fundamentally flawed - Babette's Feast review by DT

Can't imagine how bad the original draft script was which when combined with terrible screen play and poor casting is, well, simply crap

Delightful - Babette's Feast review by Ianto

Spoiler Alert
22/03/2021

This is a delightful and well observed film but as a previous reviewer has said it is aimed at a more mature audience and wont appeal if your usual fare is Hollywood block-busters.
