Karen Blixen's Babettes Gæstebud by Gabriel Axel( Visual )

97 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siglo XIX. En una remota aldea de Dinamarca viven dos hermanas, ancianas ya, envueltas en la nostalgia de una lejana juventud, en la que su educación, profundamente puritana, las obligó a renunciar a toda posibilidad de ser felices. Solteras pues, viven en una digna austeridad, hasta que aparece entre ellas Babette, quien llega huyendo del terror de su natal París. Al poco tiempo tendrá oportunidad de corresponder a la bondad y al calor con que fue acogida. Un buen premio de lotería le permite organizar una opulenta cena con los platillos y vinos de la mejor gastronomía francesa. A esta cena son invitados los vecinos, todos fanáticamente puritanos. Aceptan ir, pero entre sí pactan no dar ninguna muestra de gozo o disfrute de lo que comen y beben, porque sería pecaminoso. Sin embargo, es tal la fuerza seductora de las viandas que, poco a poco, en un ceremonial intenso y emotivo, van cediendo a la sensualidad que implica gozar de los prodigios de la cocina francesa

Les cousins by Claude Chabrol( Visual )

5 editions published between 1959 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simple, good-hearted country cousin Charles comes to study at the Sorbonne in Paris where he stays at the luxury apartment of Paul, his cynical city cousin. Charles works hard but fails his exams, Paul doesn't but passes and gets Charles's girl. Chabrol's second feature film re-unites Jean-Claude Brialy and Gerard Blain, the two lead actors from his debut feature, 'Le Beau Serge'. Paul (Brialy) is a hedonistic and confident Parisian student living in his uncle's fashionable inner city flat. He spends his time drinking, carousing, sleeping with a variety of female friends and playing the role of matchmaker for his friends, arranging trysts in an ongoing merry go round of bed partners. He is an emotionally remote and decadent man, adhering to a dubious moral code, who approaches his friends love lives with devilish detachment. Charles (Blain) is his naive country cousin, a dedicated student, who stays with Paul whilst studying for his law exams. When Charles is introduced to Paul's swinging set, he instantaneously falls for Florence, a beautiful woman who is intrigued by Charles' innocence. Paul is perturbed as he observes the attraction between the two and the respect that Charles displays for Florence. A clash is inevitable as the rivalry for Florences affection grows. The contrast between the two main characters morality is acute, especially in their attitudes toward women. A dramatic study of class conflict and personal responsibility 'Les Cousins' is a riveting and perverse study of decadent Parisian student life. The City of Lights is captured by Decae's camera as if seen through the amazed eyes of Charles. The film won the Best Film award at the Berlin Film Festival in 1959. Also available on 16mm
