Movie Info

Stourley Kracklite (Brian Dennehy), a driven, detail-obsessed architect, travels from America to Rome with his much younger wife, Louisa (Chloe Webb), to oversee an architectural homage to a personal hero, 18th-century master builder Etienne-Louis Boullée. En route by train, Stourley and Louisa conceive a much-wanted child -- but Stourley's obsession with his wife's expanding belly, her perceived infidelity, and his own recurrent bouts of abdominal pain reach epic and dangerous proportions.

  • Jul 15, 2009
    Slow, but compelling, with great interior and exterior backgrounds. A showcase of artfully presented art and architecture, with some good dialogue.

    A Belly of transgression.Snatching Mertens,offering Dennehy his must-see performance and yes folks,this is Peter Greenaway,out of the best directors working in and most importantly for cinema.Gasping with awe,the appropriate toast to a twisting little diamond from Albion.Nations,personalities collide with misery and treachery.Amongst 87's works of art for sure.
