  • Combining dance, mime and pop music, "My Cake" is a response to the saying "You can't have your cake and eat it too." The Villain looks back at his childhood, the day he discovers that the image others have of him does not match the one he has himself. This awareness causes a total transformation of personality. The film experiments with the themes of ambition, identity, society's pressure, gender stereotypes and the obsession to control one's self-image. The story told is also a nightmarish analogy for the transition from childhood to adulthood.
