BABETTE’S FEAST
Babette’s Feast is a film about the French woman Babette, who in 1872 fled counter-revolutionary bloodshed. She became the kitchen maid for two elderly Danish sisters, Martina and Philippa. Their father was the Paster and Founder of a Pietism Assembly. He raised his daughters to be pious, humble and celibate. After the death of their father, the two sisters took over the household and ensured cohesion in the community. One can feel that the two sacrificed their great love for a life of awe and abstinence. Babette, on the other hand, has a cheerful disposition and a past as a celebrated chef in a restaurant in Paris. When she wins a large sum of money in the lottery, she spends all the money on a feast for the small missionary community. The good food and the delicious wine make the cheeks glow, and the small gathering discovers that you can enjoy life and be a good believer at the same time. Karen Blixen wrote this nice little story in 1950 under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen.

In the book, the deep fjords in the Norwegian mountains dominate the landscape. I chose dark colors, but in a playful cable pattern from an old beloved sweater. The Babette sweater also looks very nice in natural white.

Director: Gabriel Axel, Year of Release: 1987, Music: Per Nørgård
