Gabriel Axel, RIP

The Danish director Gabriel Axel died on February 9. He won an Oscar for "Babette's Feast," which is probably the best movie ever. In the event, that movie was on TV this past Saturday and I caught the last forty-five minutes. There is nothing I have ever seen on the screen, big or small, that warms the heart as does that movie.
