Conclusion: Babette's Feast is a film that slowly and gradually wins you over. What seems to put you to sleep early on comes to take meaning in the joyous second half all has been building to. The result is a substantive yet appealing drama you needn't be an art house snob to enjoy.
Conclusion: Artificial Eye's Blu-ray release of Babette's Feast is a very good alternative for folks residing in Region-B territories who could not take advantage of Criterion's release. It is framed slightly differently, but in my opinion the framing does not in any way affect the integrity of the film.
Conclusion: I think that it is absolutely impossible not to like Danish director Gabriel Axel 's Babette's Feast . It is a simple and very elegant film with plenty to say about the way people treat each other. For viewers currently on a diet, it could also be a very dangerous film.
