A man celebrates his sixtieth birthday with friends, relatives, his wife and children. This is a film about love, hate, the icy charm of the bourgeoisie and the loving arms of the chambermaid.

"Dogma-tyyli toimii Juhlissa loistavasti: se vie todella lähelle hahmoja. Ahdistavassa lopussa päähenkilöpoikaan ajautuu samaistumaan pelottavan syvästi. "
