"The filming is quick and so fasted paced that it is not even relaxing to view. Garden shots are short without sweeping views of large area. The viewer does not have enough time to enjoy a beautiful scene before it is being chopped onto the next photo. The section on Japanese Gardens show a few quick shots of the same garden over and then reverts to the quick filming of opening roses and other flowers. This tirck is used over and over through out the DVD, as if it was a filler or some new trick the camera operator just figured out how to do. Close ups of gardens are common without any real sense of where the photo is being shot. The visual themes accompinging each song often have only a little in common with the title. I found the DVD so unejoyable to watch that I am very sorry I spent money on it.
Gardens of The World with Audrey Hepburn is a much better and more plesant DVD to view. Gardens of the World is a DVD you can relax to. The Beauty of Flowers and Gardens does no justice to nature and its beauty."
