Goltzius And The Pelican Company review

Greenaway brings you Goltzius

Peter Greenaway follows his Rembrandt portrait Nightwatching with the middle chapter of his ‘Dutch Masters’ trilogy, focusing on 16th-Century erotic engraver Hendrik Goltzius. Ramsey Nasr plays the Renaissance sauce pedlar who tries to convince the Margave of Alsace (F. Murray Abraham) into buying him a printing press by restaging the naughty bits from the Bible.

All a good excuse for Greenaway to indulge his strengths (painterly tableaux and theological art-history) and weaknesses (boobs and willies), and all a long way from his ’80s heyday.
