Petals and sex are just starting to go together in movies. In American Beauty, Mena Suvari's roses made sure we knew how great everything was underneath them. In Autumn Blossoms, the flower is the crysanthamum, and two aged blossom makes aspire to provide them for Misha -- a 19-year-old hooker/cellist -- to bathe in. The two fight over flowers, try to keep secret fertilzer recipies, and end up being the envy of all crysanthamum planters in their town.
