Peter Greenaway

A Zed & Two Noughts

The lives of two brothers, working in a European zoo, are dramatically altered when their wives are killed in a car crash. The circumstances of the crash are so bizarre that the brothers are unable to let it rest as an Act of God. They demand some sort of satisfaction. One brother, unable to countenance the inevitable decay of his wife’s body, tries to photograph death itself as he records the decay of animal corpses. The other brother, carrying out his dead wife’s wishes, sets about freeing a succession of animals from the zoo…

Here is another fiction which persuades an audience that, in a world of great natural beauty, all human activity is bizarre, tragic and farcical.

This title is part of the Dis Voir, Scripts by Peter Greenaway Series.
