In many ways, this is a very spiritual film. It’s no coincidence that the movie takes place in a church, where people are surrounded by redemption and love, and yet fail to see it so many times because they are too focused on past mistakes and missed opportunities. Though the movies lacks the adrenaline rush most kids seem to need in their movies these days, “Babette’s Feast” is the intelligent movie we don’t normally get. Clean, wise, and happy. A meal that will leave you full and replenished long after you finish dessert.
Parents, have nothing to worry about with this oddly touching fable. Kids may find themselves bored anyway though.
