Not inappropriate for children, but unlikely to appeal to them

I love this movie. Why I love it is difficult to explain. It's much more than just a movie about a big dinner where everyone discovers the joys of eating. It's a movie about relationships, where things that are said have little meaning, but things that are not said speak volumes. People's facial expressions, gestures and microsignals convey a depth of emotion that cannot be fully understood in one, or even two or three viewings. I wouldn't stop any children from watching it, but they most likely won't understand it and will sleep through most of it. It has some cigar-smoking (by the military officer) and some alcohol use (a lot during the dinner).

Excellent way to show kids how to do things for others

Babette's feast will leave you with so much to talk about, from religious beliefs to eating habits around the world, The sisters take Babette as a maid and cook and in return Babette cooks a feast that bring the best out of each guest. The movie might seem boring and plain but as the feast unfold so does the story. There is some very mild drinking and smoking.
