First Pics Emerge From Peter Greenaway’s New Film ‘Goltzius & The Pelican Company’ (F. Murray Abraham)

Peter Greenaway is one of cinemas great auteurs. His catalogue of films include the sumptuous THE COOK THE THIEF HIS WIFE & HER LOVER and THE PILLOW BOOK. Here’s some images from his new film GROTZIUS & THE PELICAN COMPANY starring F. Murray Abraham and you can see Greenaway has lost none of his opulence. My thanks to Kinopoisk.ru for the image.

Synopsis: Starring F. Murray Abraham, the film tells the tale of Dutch painter Hendrik Goltzius, known for his erotic depictions of Biblical stories. The film is the second in a series of movies about Dutch painters, and follows 2009’s “Nightwatching,” which centered on Rembrandt. And certainly, this one looks like it’ll be a fairly decadent production, perhaps not unlike his own work, which tends to hold little back. – Indiewire.
