Laughed at a couple things but honestly way too dry.

God, Greenaway can be so boring and annoying sometimes.

Greenway's idiosyncratic sense of humor and approach to narrative are present as always, but this was not visually compelling enough to hold my interest.

Greenaway gets a lot out of filming the minutiae of paintings. I like his creations of worlds and characters through narration, and this is no different.

All the familiar elements of Greenaway's early work come together: precision editing, oddball names, ornithology, convoluted stories, the number 92, "Tulse Luper", cataloging, repeating themes, Nyman score, dry wit. It's a warm-up to The Falls, and would satisfy in a pinch if one wanted a taste of that film without the intimidating running time. Greenaway's artistic sensibility shines through, not only from the intricate maps, but also in the gestalt of the film as a whole. Very intriguing.
