  1. Mauro Pagano's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    vero non so magari una stella in più potrebbe anche valere ma non mi è piaciuto del tutto

  2. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

  3. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    deep and meaningful message for those who feel concerned by the last days of "authentic" art. Mention to the score and the general aesthetic of the film.

  4. faerie's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Très belle photographie et musique. Malheureusement, cela ne rattrape pas les longueurs.

  5. Henri's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Comme souvent chez Peter Greenaway, les images sont belles et les références fort savantes mais l'histoire est difficilement déchiffrable.

  6. Victor LVD's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Une histoire stomacale, de la bile à l'état pure. Si aujourd'hui le réalisateur se fait rattraper par sa mégalomanie, cette même mégalomanie à pourtant permis ce film... C'est le bon équilibre. A ne pas rater.

  7. Ludovic72's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Un Greenaway obsédé (comme d'habitude) par l'anatomie et par l'esthétique classique (architecture et peinture), mais de façon "grand public", c'est-à-dire parfaitement lisible et plutôt sage, par rapport à la grande majorité de ses films...

  8. ana v.'s rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

  9. Operation Kino's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    I wonder, if Greenaway's strength is conveying the emotion of austere symbols and forms, then if his weakness is conveying the emotion of actual human characters. I lose my connection to the film toward the end, when I can neither sympathize or empathize with the titular Architect. I must admit, I'd rather admire the belly of his poisoner wife or of his enemy's sister.

  10. astygianelysium's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    it falls apart in the last quarter, when the film is forced to advance the lonely man / woman leaving narrative, and loses its flair in the clunky process. but most of the movie is a delightful flood of trivia that taunts your interpretation; sly reflections of real life onto art; Greenaway's characteristic closeups of objects-almost-symbols; and banter whose wit is conjured from how it empties the humans of content

  12. Thomas's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

  13. Pymo's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Every emotion comes from your stomach.

  14. AdrianM.'s rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    3,5 Greenaway's sets and reenactments of past art styles are always wonderful,from what I've seen so far

  15. nein's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    The pains and sorrows of an artist. The fear of become forgotten. The ultimate escape to remain remembered. Greenaway's way of looking at European culture makes me rethink my awe for it. Great plastics, but it comes without saying - it's Peter after all!

  16. Luz Sabina's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Waching how Newton is burning and all the things loss their weight.

  17. David Allen's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    This film is a beautiful visual artistic film about alienation and loneliness . The main character resorts to writing postcards to a dead architect in the depts of his loneliness . The film follows the disentigration of Stourley Kracklite (Dennehy) life , heaith ,work and marriage . You will enjoy the architecture and beauty of Rome . You get a taste of the Italians and their distaste for foreigners.

  18. Ashley TOUCRU's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Simply the best film i've ever seen.

  19. Howard Orr's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Perhaps the inevitable consequence of a Greenaway film about bellies is navel-gazing. It is stolidly pretty and, for all its careful mise en scene, very empty; what must Sacha Vierny have thought, when his camera had once prowled so impressively the halls and corridors of Resnais' far more alluring Marienbad?

  20. Surrealcinema's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Architecture, philosophy, greek history and Greenaway. It´s a carnival!

  21. Glim Ho's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    比起现在装洋蒜的你,我更喜欢以往近乎晦涩的你

  22. Cinematic's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    One of Greenaway's more transparent movies, and I love it all the more for that. The decay of art appreciation, the struggle of an artist fighting with bureaucracy for the art that no one cares about anyways, the fear of imminent fatherhood... All these themes are treated without the usual detached wit that can be seen in most of his work. Here, he conveys genuine empathy for Kracklite's tragic destiny.

  23. MLandry's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    Mise en scene was beautiful but bordered being kitschy, and the narrative was mildly interesting. The protagonist's idiosyncrasies were unwatchably obvious. This film seems to be trying to say something very specific, but is unintentionally obfuscating it's message. The score, just as the acting and casual dialogue, seemed disconnected from the characters and film as a whole. These make it seem like a feature debut.

  24. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film The Belly of an Architect

    vaya música. el primer filme de greenaway que vi, fantástico
