The Sisters' Lovers

When Babette comes into money, all she wants to do is create a special meal for her employers. While Babette cuts a mysterious figure, her employers have secrets of their own.

Two Puritan spinsters have harboured their maid Babette since she fled revolutionary Paris 12 years ago. While the Frenchwoman cuts a mysterious figure in their small Norwegian village and her employers have secrets of their own, together they have created a haven for each other and the needy of the parish. When Babette unexpectedly comes into money, her only wish is to create a special meal in gratitude.

Sylvestra Le Touzel reads Karen Blixen's classic story.

Producer: Eilidh McCreadie.
