I'm not really familiar with the work of Peter Greenaway but certainly after watching this film I can say that I least like this one, for beautiful visuals and a nice music score as well.

Brian Dennehy plays an architect (as the title suggests) who travels to Italy with his wife to become involved in a project to stage a project dedicated to one of his favourite historical inspirations. However, as he does so, he finds himself not only stricken by stomach pains, but suspicions of infidelity on the part of his wife and also the man whose work he came to study.

Beautifully shot on location by Greenaway many scenes are presented almost like real life stills of Italian paintings as they engage in various activities and as the films story plays out I found myself quite engrossed and enjoying the film a great deal. I don't know how representative of Greenaway this film is, but I would be interested in seeing more of his work.
