Drowning by Numbers is a mixture of metaphor, allegory and narrative shot with immense style in elaborately constructed and richly-coloured sets. The biggest plot thread is the murder of their partners by three generations of women. This isn't crass US TV real-life drama. This is funny, startling and utterly absorbing cinema.
Woven into this is an array of cryptic sub-plots with some unsettling themes and a couple of horrifying denouments.
If you like your plots on a plate, you won't like this film. But if you like to sit back, absorb, and wait for the realisations to come to you slowly (maybe weeks later), this is a very satisfying and absorbing film indeed.
The cinematography, the ambience, the careful pace and direction - not to mention the soundtrack - are really rather extraordinary.
In fact the English audio was very muted and there was a Polish commentary superimposed.
I tried to watch the first 20 min.
I could not enjoy the film and sent it back
There isn't a DVD version of the film available in the UK at the moment, but the Australian DVD (with UK FilmFour logo!) is region 0, so will play on any DVD player, and is probably the best bet for picture quality.
