Storyline

Twenty-two women (ranging in age from 11 to 84), with 41 breasts, talk about their breasts; most are topless as they speak. They talk about adolescence, bras, commercial images of women's figures, having implants or, in one case, a breast reduction, health problems with silicone, doctors' exams ("I think you have a throat infection, let me examine your breasts"), breasts as power tools and as objects of pleasure, cancer, living with mastectomies, and the effects of time and gravity. Two mother-daughter teams and two strippers participate. The women (and the girls) are humorous, straightforward, reflective, and good-natured about their bodies and themselves.

Exceptional.
19 March 2006 | by Chris BarrySee all my reviews

This is a great documentary about women and their relationships with their breasts. It was shown on TVO here in Canada quite a bit but I don't know how widely it was distributed. I think Mpix some cable channel in the States screened it a couple of times.

It's really interesting to watch women's reactions to their own breasts. Virtually none of them, with the notable exception of one fabulous modern dancer, are really comfortable with having them and they have a hard time figuring out why men love boobs so much. As a man, I have to say, the mysteries of nature are quite perplexing and obviously not resolved in this 50 minute doc, but if there's one thing I have to say about this program it really gave me insight into women's feelings about their bodies. I recommend everyone watch this wonderful doc.
