Warm and with subtle humor, this sumptuous period film is a delight!

Based on a story by Isak Dinesen, this evocative film takes the viewer to a small village in late-19th Century Denmark.  The stories of two pious sisters, their devout community, and their devoted French housekeeper are told and come together on the occasion of a glorious feast. Winner of the 1998 Oscar Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
