The rules of correct behaviour found in books of etiquette present themselves as aiding communiction and helping people understand each other. They also claim to help us engage socially with greater ease and self confidence. These rules are learnt from birth which is the only way for us to completely internalise them. Their model is found in western civilisations, and compliance with them makes it easy to discern who is civilised and who is not. the film deals with customs of eating and drinking – specifically with the lunch situation, as communal eating is the central site of showing others our breading and finesse.
