ABOUT THE FILM

Directed by Peter Greenaway, the dark side of ecstasy unfolds against the backdrop of Japan’s frenzied pachinko parlors and the Swiss countryside. After the death of his wife, a wealthy businessman questions his devotion to his passive spouse and denial of sensual experimentation for their many years of marriage. When his son returns to the family’s Swiss chateau, he brings his father to see Federico Fellini’s masterpiece, 8 1/2. The sight of so many magnificent women inspires them to turn their mansion into a chateau of sexual pleasure. But soon their wild sexual fantasies begin to unravel, and the two men discover that when fantasy becomes reality, the balance of power can shift. Starring Toni Collette, Amanda Plummer, Vivian Wu, and Polly Walker.
