"Greenaway's new film is -- let us waste no time -- a masterpiece."
Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

"Greenaway -- inspired by Jacobean revenge plays and Dutch masters' paintings -- stuffs the viewer with ripe images and raw language. He tests your appetite for intelligent sensation. For many it may be a daunting test, but it is worth taking."
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine

"Gambon is stupendous, a roaring hound from hell. And Mirren is his match in a performance of mounting fervor."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"Many people will be profoundly offended by this film... but some may appreciate it for what it certainly is: the most startling depiction of intellectual cruelty and evil for many years."
★★★★ John Mount, Empire Magazine

At Le Hollandais gourmet restaurant, every night is filled with opulence, decadence and gluttony. But when the cook, a thief, his wife and her lover all come together, they unleash a shocking torrent of sex, food, murder and revenge. With a soundtrack by Michael Nyman and costume design by Jean Paul Gaultier this is a rare screening not to be missed.
