Join us for a luscious and heartwarming film about food and love that will set the tone for the holiday season. On a dramatic windswept coast of Denmark in the late 19th century, Danish director Gabriel Axel evokes, in exquisite detail, the years leading up to a meal that touches the lives of everyone gathered at the table.
The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1987 and has proven itself immensely popular for the last 30 years, with a "Tomato Meter" reading of 97%.
Ellen Shelton, BendFilm's Year-Round Programmer, will give an introduction that should make the film more interesting to watch and enjoy, even for people who have seen the film before.
