The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover (1989) DVD
THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER
Peter Greenaway's most famous (or infamous) film, which first shocked audiences at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival. A gang leader accompanied by his wife and his associates, entertains himself every night in a fancy French restaurant that he has recently bought. Having tired of her sadistic, boorish husband, the wife finds herself a lover and makes love to him in the restaurant's coziest places with the silent permission of the cook. The film is at once funny and horrific, and those who are not used to Greenaway's peculiar style might be even disgusted or shocked; however, one might mention Sacha Vierny's brilliant camerawork, Jean-Paul Gaultier's gaudily stylized costumes, and Michael Nyman's somber, pulsating music, which will haunt the viewer long after the film's end.
