Babette's Feast

 (1987)

Babette's Feast Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 19th century Denmark, two adult sisters live in an isolated village with their father, who is the honored pastor of a small Protestant church that is almost a sect unto itself. Although they each are presented with a real opportunity to leave the village, the sisters choose to stay with their father, to serve to him and their church. After some years, a French woman refugee, Babette, arrives at their door, begs them to take her in, and commits herself to work for them as maid/housekeeper/cook. Sometime after their father dies, the sisters decide to hold a dinner to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his birth. Babette experiences unexpected good fortune and implores the sisters to allow her to take charge of the preparation of the meal.

Babette's Feast Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Gabriel Axel's Babette's Feast arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Artificial Eye.

The high-definition transfer appears to have been sourced from the same elements Criterion had access to when they prepared their Blu-ray release of this acclaimed Danish film for the U.S. market. However, the two releases are not identical. First, the framing of their transfers is different. Criterion's release preserves the original 1.66:1 aspect ratio, while this release presents the film in 1.78:1. However, the discrepancies are extremely small. I attempted to match a few screencaptures, but none of them accurately show how small the difference in the framing is. In fact, if viewing the two films it is virtually impossible to spot any specific differences. Second, the two releases have different color-schemes. On this release there are more prominent grays and better balanced blues. On the Criterion release the reds and blues are notably richer. Detail and clarity, however, are virtually identical (compare screencapture # 10 with screencapture #1 from our review of the Criterion release). During close-ups as well as during larger panoramic shots image depth is identical. There are no compression issues. Some extremely light noise, however, is present. Lastly, there are no large debris, stains, cuts, or damage marks to report in this review. All in all, despite the minor framing discrepancy, I think that the technical presentation is every bit as satisfying as Criterion's presentation of Babette Feast. Projected, the film looks quite beautiful. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Babette's Feast Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: Danish LPCM 2.0 (with portions of French and Swedish). For the record, Artificial Eye have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless track is as impressive as the one from Criterion's release. In fact, I compared a couple of different scenes and there is absolutely no difference in terms of depth and dynamic intensity. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and very easy to follow. Also, there are no pops, cracks, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
