Praise for exposure of hidden beauty.
17 January 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

A charming, lighthearted documentary about a facial feature that has legendary significance. Les Blank creates a sensitive portrait of the experiences and accomplishments of women with space between their two front teeth. Some of the women dislike the gap, but most of the women featured have grown to enjoy their gapped teeth and express feelings of solidarity and pride among their dentulous sisters. The movie is excellent at portraying uniqueness and difference without making a spectacle out of its subjects. It also succeeds in depicting female images of beauty that are outside the realm of mainstream media. A good film for young teenagers.
