What's the Title

What is the name of the foreign film that has a scene where a woman vomits after eating flowers? I am trying to find out because my friend told me it is his favorite movie but wants me to guess what it is. Sigh!

I'm guessing it's Like Water for Chocolate? The vomiting and the flower eating are two separate scenes though. In one scene Tita makes a dish out of rose petals, and in an earlier scene her tears mixed in a wedding cake causes all the guests to vomit.

Yes, the flower eating scene is a VERY positive one. After eating quail with rose petal sauce, Tita's sister (name?) in particular, is consumed with extreme feelings of euphoric lust. This causes her to run away for afew years, joining a house of prostitution to satisfy her desires.

The film could be ELVIRA MADIGAN [Widerberg, 1967, in Swedish].

Exactly. Elvira Madigan, in which the lovers resort to eating available vegetation (Pia Degermark eats flowers) to survive. Later Degermark throws up rather decorously (to Mozart, I recall).
