ENGAGING NEW DOC SURVEYS HIDDEN HISTORY OF BREAST IMPLANTS
Thom Browning | New York, NY | 01/21/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This film by Carol Ciancutti-Leyva truly opened my eyes to the debate about breast implants, their consequences, and what the different motivations are for women to get them.
Not only does it take an unbiased and objective approach (one mark of an outstanding documentary), but it also weaves the personal stories of several women into its narrative. Because of this, the film resonates as more than just an essay on the history of breast implants and becomes a powerful expression of how a woman's self-image can be shaped by society, leading her to have a potentially risky procedure performed on her and all for the sake of meeting our culture's standards of "beauty."
Overall, I found this film to be both thought-provoking and endearing and well worth the purchase of the DVD. If you are interested in the history of breast implants or in gaining a new perspective on the complicated relationship between women and the appearance-driven society we live, or even if you merely have a fondness for real-life personal stories, then ABSOLUTELY SAFE is definitely a must-see.
I give it FIVE STARS."
