This is a stream-of-consciousness movie in which a group of women spanning the ages of early twenties to sixties attend a birthday party. A French documentary filmmaker attends the party and becomes fascinated when none of the guests will touch the birthday cake. She begins interviewing the party-goers, and they open up, revealing many hidden thoughts and beliefs, a main theme being their special relationship with food. This is a great mind-watcher or flusher of a movie. You may want to watch just a portion of it and then journal your thoughts or use an Instrument for Peace worksheet if something comes into awareness that needs to be looked at more deeply.

Movies are an excellent way to watch your mind, to pay attention to your emotions, and to help you discover your unconscious beliefs.
