The Draughtsman's Contract (Region B)

Peter Greenaway's witty, stylised, erotic country house murder mystery, newly remastered in 4K

Peter Greenaway became a director of international status with this witty, stylised and erotic English country house murder mystery.

In an apparently idyllic 17th-century Wiltshire, an ambitious draughtsman is commissioned by the wife of an aristocrat to produce 12 drawings depicting her husband’s estate, in return for which he will receive payment, board and bed – hers.

Extravagant costumes, a twisting plot, elegantly barbed dialogue and a score by Michael Nyman make the film a treat for ear, eye and mind.
