A picturesque and colorful ode to tulips...
9 December 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Tulips take center stage in this James A. FitzPatrick Traveltalk short focusing on Holland, the land of tulips.

We glimpse a profusion of floral landscapes surrounding various homes in Holland; a floral parade through the center of town; scenes of windmills and a variety of tulips, both originating in Holland sometime during the 15th century; and how it takes five to ten years to cultivate certain bulbs.

The colorful landscapes dominate the film which is really a salute to the tulip industries of Holland.

Summing up: Well photographed in Technicolor, it's a storybook, picture postcard view of Holland of the sort that invites tourism.
