Belly of an Architect Review

Image for Belly of an Architect

Supervising an expedition for a french architect, Boullee, who is famous for oval structures, an American architect becomes obsessed with an oval structure of his own and looses his wife and unborn baby in the process.

Portly architect Dennehy arrives in Rome to organise an exhibition, and instead becomes obsessed with the stomach of the Emperor Augustus. Usual quotas of grub and bonking and a particularly high fig count in among the fruit, all wrapped up a Greenaway visual feast that is like a painting itself.

A postmodern glory which is certainly a world apart from Cocoon.
