This witty, stylised and erotic country-house murder mystery, set in an apparently idyllic seventeenth-century Wiltshire, established Peter Greenaway as a director of international status. Extravagant costumes, a twisting plot, elegantly barbed dialogue and a mesmerising score by Michael Nyman make the film a treat for ear, eye and mind.
