In the summer of 1987-88, the cinema I worked my school holidays at played the Danish film Babette's Feast - the story of a refugee from the Franco-Prussian War cooking a thank-you meal for the austere Danish community who took her in, turning out to be one of France's most noted chefs. The film turned me into both a foodie and a cinephile, and I've been a sucker for a foodie film ever since.
