Favorite film of Pope Francis.
First Danish movie to win an Academy Award for best foreign language film.
The novella on which this film is based was originally published in June 1950 in "Lady's Home Journal". It was the last work published in her lifetime by 'Isak Dinesen', the pen-name of Karen Blixen-Finecke (1885-1962) (Dinesen was her maiden name). She is best remembered now as being played by Meryl Streep in the film based on her memoirs 'Out Of Africa'.
Selected by the Vatican in the "religion" category of its list of 45 "great films."
The original novella is set in the Norwegian village of Berlevag. Although Gabriel Axel stayed very close to the original source he felt that the original setting had become too colourful and pretty to evoke the bleakness described by Blixen, and transposed the setting to Jutland in his native Denmark, where he had the wooden village houses built.
Final film of Ebba With, Gert Bastian, Lisbeth Movin, Bendt Rothe and Pouel Kern.
The church used in the movie was Marup Church in Jutland, Denmark built around 1250. Positioned on the Lonstrup Klint, a geologically unique cliff, it edged towards the sea as the ground eroded 1.5 metres a year over the last 300 years. Between 2007 and 2016 the church was dismantled and moved to a new site on an open-air national museum.
Alton Brown claims this is the greatest food film of all time on the YouTube show "Hot Ones."
Many of the older actors were veterans of the films of Carl Theodor Dreyer.
Conscious of negative reaction to her previous attempts at playing less sophisticated roles, Catherine Deneuve declined the lead role.
The full name of the French general mentioned by Babette and General Löwenhielm was Gaston Alexandre Auguste, Marquis de Galliffet. He was a French war hero and long-serving soldier. He became infamous for his repression of the Paris Commune in 1871.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
With the approval of the director, Audran entrusted the creation of her iconic costume to her long-time accomplice, the stylist Karl Lagerfeld..
