Sonica Films @ GFT
Celebrating the classic collaborations of filmmaker Peter Greenaway and composer Michael Nyman, Sonica Glasgow 2022 is proud to present two filmic masterpieces in partnership with the GFT
A Zed and Two Noughts
Pairs, doubles and mirror images recur and reoccur in Peter Greenaway’s early masterpiece, first released in 1985. After their mother is killed in a road accident, her twin zoologist sons become obsessed with death and decomposition. Snails, zebras and David Attenborough’s Life on Earth appear as the Deuce boys’ fixations and relationships grow ever stranger. Bursting with vivid imagery and moments of dreamlike surrealism, this is one of Greenaway’s most visually spectacular and memorable films.

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover
Peter Greenaway’s stunning 1989 film is set in a fabulous London restaurant, Le Spica, run under an uneasy alliance of a head chef and the restaurant’s new owner, a vicious mobster. When the owner’s wife begins an illicit affair with one of the customers, a twisted tale of retaliation and revenge begins to unfold. Michael Gambon gives an unforgettable central performance in this extravaganza of meat and murder, violence and tenderness.
