Aroview: Greenaway combines the best elements of his previous work into one illustrious concoction of charcoal humour, explicit violence, awe-inspiring art direction and intense Michael Nyman score. Cinema at its most challenging and enthralling.

5 stars (Exceptional) The wife of a barbaric London gangleader & theif has an affair with a gentle bookseller who dines at her husband's restaurant, run by a cook who despises his boss. Despite the cruelty, torture, murder & cannibalism, it's beautifully filmed. Pure genius.~GenXGirl
4 stars (Very Good) Very clever movie - I love how each scene is dramatized by the changing color scheme - The characters are hypnotic and another stella performance given by Mirren - Recommendation - Babbettes Feast (culinary/historical/french)rn ~Anon
