Product description

Product Description

A film by Peter Greenaway

Peter Greenaway became a director of international status with this witty, stylised, erotic country house murder mystery. In an apparently idyllic 17th century Wiltshire, an ambitious draughtsman is commissioned by the wife of an aristocrat to produce twelve drawings of her husband's estate, in return for which he will receive payment, board and bed hers. Extravagant costumes, a twisting plot, elegantly barbed dialogue and a score by Michael Nyman make the film a treat for ear, eye and mind

DVD extras include a Director Commentary, a film introduction by Peter Greenaway, an interview with Michael Nyman, behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes, a stills gallery, theatrical trailers for The Draughtsman's Contract and A Zed & Two Noughts, a feature on the film's digital restoration, plus hidden features

UK | 1982 | colour | English language, with optional French language dubbed version and optional French and Dutch subtitles | 104 minutes | Original aspect ratio 1.66:1 (16x9 anamorphic) | Region 2 DVD


'...a tantalising puzzle, wrapped in eroticism and presented with the utmost elegance. I have never seen a film quite like it...a crossword puzzle for the senses.' --Roger Ebert

'...features the score that established Muchael Nyman's international reputation as one of the finest composers for the screen.' --Philip French, the Observer

'Science fiction of the most dazzling kind.' --David Pirie, Time Out
