In a remote 19th-century Danish village, two sisters Martine (Birgitte Federspiel) and Philippa (Bodil Kjer), lead a rigid life centered around their father, the local minister, and their church. Both had opportunities to leave the village: one could have married a young army officer and the other, a French opera singer. Their father objected in each case, and they spent their lives caring for him. Many years later, after their father is deceased, the sisters take in French refugee, Babette Hersant (Stéphane Audran), who agrees to work as their servant.  After winning the lottery, Babette wants to repay the sisters for their kindness and offers to cook a French meal for them and their friends on the 100th anniversary of their father’s birth. It proves to be an eye-opening experience for everyone. Directed by Gabriel Axel. 1987. Rated G. 1 hour, 43 minutes.
