Rarely has the English language sounded so beautiful in a film as it does in this lavish period piece. From the sumptuous cinematography and exaggerated costumes to the razor sharp script it provides a sensuous feast for both eye and ear. Greenaway presents us with a seemingly straightforward murder mystery on a country estate then proceeds to obscure the proceedings with allegorical clues, enigmatic dialogue and the occasional red herring. Solving the crime, however, takes a back seat to the simple pleasure of watching a cinematic artist at work. Brilliant!
