Dos hermanas, envueltas en la nostalgia de una lejana juventud, viven en una digna austeridad hasta que aparece entre ellas Babette, quien llega huyendo del terror de su natal París. Al poco tiempo Babette tendrá oportunidad de corresponder a la bondad y al calor con que fue acogida. Organiza una opulenta cena con los platillos y vinos de la mejor gastronomía. Es tal la fuerza seductora de las viandas que, poco a poco, en un ceremonial intenso y emotivo, los invitados ceden a la sensualidad que implica gozar de los prodigios de la cocina. La cena termina en medio de una contenida pero muy profunda alegría, despertando el calor humano que todos llevaban soterrado. Se da el milagro de hacer brotar la bondad humana a través del goce de los sentidos

In einem kleinen Fischerdorf an der Küste Jütlands führen die beiden Schwestern Phillipa und Martina in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ein bescheidenes, gottesfürchtiges Leben. Als Töchter eines tiefgläubigen Sektengründers bewahrten sie ihre jungfräuliche Unschuld. Ein Verehrer aus Frankreich schickt ihnen eines Tages Babette, die bei ihnen als Köchin Zuflucht sucht. Jahrelang versorgt sie mit bescheidenen Mitteln die Armen und Bedürftigen, bis sie eines Tages in der Lotterie gewinnt. Zum hundertsten Geburtstag des Sektengründers zaubert Babette ein Gourmetmenü auf den Tisch, für das sie eigens aus Frankreich Lebensmittel besorgt hat. Einer der Tafelgäste erkennt dabei die Handschrift einer der gefeiertsten Köchinnen Frankreichs. (Quelle. cede.ch)
