THE DRAUGHTSMAN'S CONTRACT
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 mindDVD 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
