In this intriguing drama with dark comedic moments from director Peter Greenaway, three generations of unhappy English wives-each named Cissie Colpitts-do away with their respective husbands by drowning them. The deaths bring the women into contact with the local coroner, and a series of stylized, erotic, and dangerous games follows. Joan Plowright, Juliet Stevenson, Joely Richardson, and Bernard Hill star. 119 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English. Region Free

Exquisite Sacha Vierny visuals, post modern music by Michael Nyman, courtesy of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
A trio of grand female actors, Steveson, Richardson (Joley ot Miranda) and Ploughwright, wondering at what she has agreed to participate in.
The English, mainly male, preoccupation with collecting, cataloguing and games.
Greenaway, ever the helpful curator, offers a tour guide for the uninitiated and possibly phobic which is a informative Coles Notes to understanding and appreciation and is, rarely, a really useful extra.
Together with Kate Bush's songs, 'England, My Lionheart' and Powell ad Pressburger's 'A Canterbury Tale', it tells the interested foreigner everything you ever wanted to know about the English but were afraid to ask.
It strongly reminded me of Alain Resnais's Providence, made a decade earlier and of course written by an Englishman, David Mercer, and peopled by English actors, .Warner, Bogarde and Gielgud. Knowing how much Greenaway appreciated Resnais, even conscripting his cameraman, I wonder if it was a conscious influence and hommage.
I have mixed feelings about Greenaway but I am grateful that he exists in the often philistine British film industry, a world away from the social realist, leftist pamphleteer Loach and, to a lesser extent Leigh, that against all the odds occasionally produces off beat talents like Michael Powell, Nicholas Roeg and even, especially early, Ken Russell.
Peter Greenaway trained as a painter and injects a painter’s vision throughout the film’s 114 minute running time. He doesn’t present the story in the manner of other filmmakers – as illustrated text, with an obvious beginning, a centre and an end – but declared cinema as an art form perfectly suited (in his case, at least) as a painter’s medium. So he creates pastoral images alongside keeping the imagination of his audience working with puzzles and games in a tale that concentrates upon two universal subjects, sex and death.
As anyone aware of Peter Greenaway’s work, this is not mainstream cinema. It is unique and, with his other films, best absorbed – and more rewarding – with several viewings.
