Synopsis:
3 generations of women share a name and an aversion to marriage. 3 husbands have reason to be afraid of water. Add to the equation 1 amorous coroner and 1 inventive little boy and so begins the game. 'Drowning by Number' is a sharp and witty tale of female camaraderie with Joan Plowright, Juliet Stevenson and Joely Richardson giving first-class performances. Peter Greenaway's charming pastoral setting overflows with metaphors and mathematical riddles in a film that will continue to amuse for countless viewings.

Eccentric, bizarre, brilliant. - Drowning by Numbers review by MN

Spoiler Alert

It wont be for everyone but if you know Peter Greenaway you know what you're in for. If not, the Draughtman's Contract is probably a better place to start. Bizarre games, numbers, lists, sex and murder. An exquisite british comedy of the highest calibre, and I must say that the bluray looks stunning.
