Denmark 1987
Dir Gabriel Axel
With Stéphane Audran, Bodil Kjer, Birgitte Federspiel
English subtitles
Certificate U

Brilliantly relocating Isak Dinesen’s story to the bleak Jutland coast of the 1870s, Axel’s film explores the unlikely causes and miraculous consequences of a famous Parisian chef (Audran) coming to work for two elderly sisters living in an ascetically religious hamlet. A warm, witty and wise tale of lost love, self-sacrifice and redemptive grace, performed to perfection by a terrific cast.
