Denmark 1987

Certificate U

Relocating Isak Dinesen’s 1870s-set story (inspired by The Tempest) to a hamlet on the windswept Jutland coast, Axel makes much of the contrast between the austere simplicity of two pious, elderly sisters’ lives and the miraculous banquet their French cook conjures up one magical evening. A funny, touching and finally mouthwatering fable about faith, missed opportunities and the good things in life.

The screening on Wednesday 15 March will be introduced by Tim Robey, film critic.
