An unusual little dark film from Peter Greenaway. Strangely intriguing, once you start watching, you feel like you HAVE to see it through just to find out just what happens. Michael Gambon is amazing, you can tell he's having fun being let loose in this role. Unfortunately there are no special features on this release, disappointing as I'm sure the behind the scenes on this one would have been a blast!
