Peter Greenaway’s highly acclaimed first feature was filmed in the beautiful house and gardens of Groombridge near Tunbridge Wells. The drama is set in the late seventeenth century and the plot is one of intrigue between the sexes. Successful artist Mr Neville (Anthony Higgins) is commissioned by Mrs Herbert (Janet Suzman) to draw up her late husband’s estate. Part of the contract includes the exchange of sexual favours between the two, but sexual intrigue soon turns to murder.

A visual masterpiece as well crafted as the drawings themselves. A murder mystery unfolds,with the main character seemingly the user, turns into the used & abused in conclusion. If you enjoy a period drama with Michael Nyman's music, you're in for a treat
