A Peter Greenaway art film, tending toward porn, both straight and gay. Ewan McGregor has nothing to hide after this.
The calligraphic displays are lovely, although I don't quite get the obsession with body-writing. The story falls apart in the last half hour.
What the home video editions need are more subtitles. Several of the actors are not English speakers and it's hard to make out the dialogue. I imported a region B Blu-ray but it has no additional subtitles and image quality is no upgrade over the DVD.
