    This is a total masterpiece. Saw it theatrically when it was released. Has the coolest matching costume and production design and a lovely and hot Helen Mirren.

    Another cracking gem from the Netherlands. Not seen this since the days of VHS.
    Looking forward to it : )

    Need to catch my breath here, arguably the best Greenaway film. Much appreciated RL!

      (main country: UK, never mind IMDB)

    • Ian says:

      A contest between this, A Zed & Two Noughts, The Draughtman’s Contract, and Drowning By Numbers would be a close one!

      Yep, the money was UK/French and the main talent is UK.

      It’s a pity that the pair here today don’t have commentaries really, because there is so much to watch out for in them.
