Drowning by Numbers

1988

Peter Greenaway
Director

Three ladies named Cissy Colpitts dispose of their paramours in watery fashion.

Another Greenaway enigma, obsessed with games, numbers, death and sex all set to Michael Nyman's exquisite music.

For fans of the director, who will love it, others beware.
