A masterpiece of modern cinema, A ZED AND TWO NOUGHTS is 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 (Ferréol), loses her leg. The two widowers, twin zoologists Oliver and Oswald (the Deacons), fixate on their wives’ bodies, and slowly become obsessed with evolution and decomposition— even going as far as to meticulously craft exquisitely morbid time-lapsed films of decaying creatures. – Zeitgeist Films
