Synopsis

A stunning new print of Peter Greenaway's acclaimed first feature, a satisfyingly complex Jacobean murder mystery set in an English country garden during the height of a late 17th century summer. A draughtsman contracted to execute 12 drawings of an estate negotiates terms to include the sexual favours of his employer Mrs Herbert (Janet Suzman). But when a corpse is dragged from the moat, the draughtsman's designs may reveal more than he realised. A brilliantly perverse film of extraordinary visual beauty with Michael Nyman's mesmerising, heart-racing score. Starring Anthony Higgins.
