"Shocking stuff for mainstream TV and yet it isn’t, there is nothing salacious or pornographic here, the effect is more like a beautiful painting. I felt I was viewing a Rembrandt or an Old Dutch Master. Full marks for the cinematography."
"I (Jenny Ash, director) was excited to come across cinematographer Ann Evelin Lawford’s work which has an unusual and arresting female gaze. This is actually her first foray into broadcast television – and she added a great intensity and beauty to the film."
"The camera work in 100 Vaginas is exquisite. It never feels intrusive or exploitative, although the subject matter is about as up-close-and-personal as it is possible to be."
The Independent ★★★★★
"What it undoubtedly was, instead, was gently but firmly and relentlessly radical."
The Guardian ★★★★★
"Far more than mere titillation – this was an important sex education film."
The Telegraph ★★★★★
