You'd think that a movie about a book that is promoting the vagina would show a few vaginas. Not here. There are a bunch of people talking about how women should not be ashamed of their vaginas, how beautiful vaginas are, and how no vagina looks the same; yet no vaginas. I thought the whole point was that there is nothing to be ashamed of. Seems ridiculous to me. What's next? Will they produce a show about gardening, yet show no plants? Or maybe they'll make a travel documentary about Italy, and just interview people from Utah who've been to Italy. If I could give this boring show zero stars, I would. You might find that watching paint dry is more interesting. A total waste of time and money.

With only two reviews to go on...it was hard to push the buy button. I am glad I did. As a woman..I have always been uncomfortable with that which should be hidden...even not talked about. This movie is beautiful in making what is natural...and part of every women..seem beautiful and unique/individual. I am very glad to have seen it and will show it to my teenage daughter tomorrow.
If you are a woman...watch it. Its very well done and tasteful.

This is an artistic and theraputic documentary about women's genitals. It's not an erotic or sexual view of women's gentalia and actually a lot of the documentary is spent trying to help the viewer to understand that the "Petals" are beautiful and that most women don't accept that part of them as being beautiful. The documentary grazes over the history and art and spends a lot of time on the theraputic.

The only problem I have with the documentary is that it left me with a psuedo-new age therapy feeling. And while it's clear to see that the people involved wish to help women to love thier "Petals" it just feels slightly off, to me. That's my personal take on the documentary. The art, the book, the work these people are doing, it's all amazing and I hope that many more women learn to love themselves as they are.

Women are beautiful. The come in all shapes and sizes. We should love them all just the way they are.

It's a poor talk show. The cover, both picture and title, is misleading. You cannot see any beautiful stuff. Save you money.

I was so impressed by this film. I believe this is something I will share with my friends and if I have have children I think at a certain age I would be thrilled to show this film. When I read the description for the film I wondered how this would stray away from the erotic view of the vulva. However, within the first half of this film, the interviews and commentary helped evolve the depth of this experience in an educational and appreciative sense. I would certainly say all women should watch this film.

This 48 year old female wishes this film was available to me thirty-years ago. Thank you for making it and especially to the women who so generously posed for it.

The film's given me a greater peace and price within my own body. I recommend it to everyone, teenagers as part of their sex education, boys and men too.

Cannot attest to the variety of vulvas having had only one wife for
55 years but this widower has never lost his fascination with all
aspects of the female body BUT the films spends most of your hour
with people talking the subject to death then in the last minutes of the
film there is a slide show of black and white pictures. It makes the point
that, like flower petals, vulvas are beautiful no matter what shape they
have. Color pictures would have revealed that vulvas also have color
variations.
