Drowning by Numbers

Directed by Peter Greenaway
United Kingdom, Netherlands, 1988
Avant-Garde, Comedy, Drama


A curious tale of three women of the same name, whose solidarity for one another brings about three copy-cat drownings. Their husbands are the victims and the motive is dissatisfaction. The women are confident that their crimes will not be punished because they have in tow a coroner who loves them.

Drowning by Numbers Directed by Peter Greenaway

Critics reviews

This fairytale-like trio of symmetrical stories is decorated with eccentric marginalia – invented games, playground folklore, reflections on water – which illuminate its fastidiously ordered but jesting symbolic framework.
