New Digital Transfer of an Oscar-Winning Tale

Originally released in 1987, the Danish drama directed by Gabriel Axel has been revived by the British Film Institute. Based on the short story by Isak Dinesen, Babette's Feast is a reflection on the life of two elderly sisters, whose father was a pious pastor. Now that he has died, less and people seem to come to church, and the sisters recollect the days of their youth at the congregation.

The BFI have re-released Babette's Feast in a new digital transfer, so you can see the all the passion, magic and miracles in magnificent resolution.
