★★★★

Peter Greenaway's directorial debut can be enjoyed as a country house murder mystery with Restoration drama trappings, as a cocksure draughtsman agrees to a new job so that he can indulge in sexual favours with his female employer.

However, the film's formal structure is both playful and thematically significant.

A well-constructed plot that's both playful and thematically significant.
