Lust. Murder. Dessert. Bon appétit! Peter Greenaway’s notorious arthouse hit is a tour de force of sex, death, food, rage and revenge, a Grand Guignol grossout, and a deliciously pitch-black comedy fueled by expert performances (including Michael Gambon, Helen Mirren, Tim Roth), stunning Sacha Vierny cinematography, and a stellar Michael Nyman score.

“The best film of the year! More perverse than Python. More dazzling than DeMille. More graphically daring than anything you’re likely to see on the screen.” – Marcia Pally, Penthouse

“A bracingly intelligent and often beautiful work – a chilling black comedy that tells its heartless story in a virtuoso style marked by visual elegance and dark, ironic wit. Anyone able to stomach its graphic imagery will find it an unsettling but unforgettable movie.” – San Francisco Chronicle
