In the story, in their modes of communication, young girls seems to be talking too much while in the movie the girls just nodded their head to mean yes or no (p. 187). On page 189, the story narrates how Lorens went to the market place and met Martine with his horse, while in the film, she is busy collecting milk where some of it spilled, and she later walks into the house.

Another noticeable difference is that in the book the author mentioned a doorbell while in the film Babette knocks the door when she arrives at the house.

I broke my own rules with Babette’s Feast and watched the movie first. I began to notice difference as I read the story and even some small differences seemed very notable.

On the very first page, (p. 187) it reads “ They swore not at all, but their communication was yea yea and nay nay, and they called one another Brother and Sister”. I remember in the movie that there was very little spoken word from the girls in their younger years. They both seem to nod more than speak and I never once heard anyone say yay yay or nay nay. (This certainly would have stood out considering the popular, albeit moronic, song Watch Me (Whip-Nae Nae) that I can’t seem to avoid hearing on some form of media lately.)

Another difference I noted was that on page 189 the story tells that Lorens rides his horse down to the marketplace where he meets Martine. In the movie however, she is collecting milk (entirely too much of which is being spilled) and she walks back to her house. Either the accounts are different here, or that is the smallest marketplace known to man.

On the same page the book tells of a Loewenhielm family Legend about relative marrying a mountain spirit of Norway who “shines and quivers”. This union gives a “second sight” to some generations of the bloodline, in this case Lorens. In the movie I believe they explain his meeting Martine and having a vision of sorts, more like a fantasy of what life would be like with her. Had I read the story first, I may have filled in this info during the movie, but having gone in the opposite order, this was noticeably different.

On page 190, “When in the evening he came back to his aunt’s house he kicked the shining riding-boots to the corners of his room; he even laid his head on the table and wept”. Maybe in the movie they decided to let him keep a little of his dignity, and left out this temper tantrum.

Page 194 brought a shock when comparing the book to the movie. Achille Papin was quite the drama queen both in print and on screen but this line was bold even for him. “I wonder what is the matter with that hussy? Did I kiss her by any chance?” I can’t decide if he was so engulfed in his own overzealous emotions that he didn’t realize he kissed her or if he has memory loss. I decided to conclude that it was very likely that all of his adventures in life were this animated. Personally, I think a bi-polar bullet was dodged with this one.

I noted that the book mentions a “bell-rope” doorbell and in the movie Babette knocks when she initially arrives. On page 200 there is a paragraph that paints a picture of Babette that I did not see in the movie. She is said to go into comatose like states of sitting motionless with eyes wide open. In the movie I found Babette to be warm and respectful despite knowing from Papin’s letter that she came from a tragic history.

I very much enjoyed them both but I would choose the movie again and again even if just to see the little old woman reject the water for the wine.
