Event Originally produced by Zeitgeist Films in 1985.
Summary A masterpiece of modern cinema, A ZED AND TWO NOUGHTS is Peter Greenaway’s beautifully disturbing and darkly humorous take on erotic obsession and death. In a horrific automobile-swan accident in front of the Rotterdam Zoo, two women die and a third, Alba, loses her leg. The two widowers, twin zoologists Oliver and Oswald, fixate on their wives’ bodies, and slowly become obsessed with evolution and decomposition. With this follow-up to his acclaimed THE DRAUGHTSMAN’S CONTRACT, Greenaway intensifies his already striking visual style by collaborating with legendary French cinematographer Sacha Vierny to create a masterpiece of motivated light. *"An enjoyably decadent, ridiculously convoluted thingamajig." - Nathan Lee, **Village Voice***
