 The Belly of an Architect (1987)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Peter Greenaway's "Belly of an Architect" is pretentious, painful, beautifully filmed, and contains a fascinating performance by an under-utilized actor.
In "Belly of an Architect", the sets are provided by the location: a beautifully shot Rome, from its museums to its ruins to its restaurants.
Our architect starts to think he's exhibiting the same symptoms as his obsession, and begins to suspect his own wife is poisoning him as well.

 The Belly of an Architect
The Belly of an Architect (1987) is a joint English Italian co-production written and directed by Peter Greenaway.
Dennehy no sooner arrives in Rome than his stomach starts bothering him, and he becomes totally obsessed with bellies, ignoring his wife, and driving her to the other man. The fact that she is pregnant is a plus in the eyes of the other man, because that obviates the need for birth control.
Meanwhile, the Italian architect who controls the purse strings wants to take over the exhibition from him, and is siphoning money for a restoration that is his own pet project.

Owning an arm's length list of home grown IP should be the goal of every publisher, because it gives them ultimate control of their own destiny and revenues.
It’s an old writer’s saying that, "The strength of your villain is the strength of your story." There’s no point in having your hero triumph over a weak villain.
This is sometimes described as going into "the belly of the beast," or fighting the bad guy in his "innermost lair." But what is important is that your hero confronts evil in whatever form you have chosen to present it, and that he defeats it.

 ‘The Belly of an Architect’ (NR)
In Peter Greenaway's 1987 "The Belly of an Architect," Brian Dennehy plays Kracklite, an illustrious architect from Chicago, "city of red meat and money," who has come to Rome with his wife, Louisa (Chloe Webb), to mount an exhibition honoring his hero, the visionary 18th-century French architect Etienne-Louis Boullee.
Greenaway has timed the movie to the cycle of birth; it begins, in fact, with that lovemaking scene and ends with the birth of their baby as the exhibition opens nine months later.
And while we're aware that an equation is being drawn between the different forms of creation, the ideas are so dryly presented and detached so completely from their human context that we're not entirely sure what the significance is. Our reaction, ultimately, is so what?

The russet hue of quince cheese is true to the perfumed pulp of this exquisite fruit.
The form in eating it is to first scrape off the outside where the espresso clings, and then when you are about halfway through and the ice cream has softened, work it into the coffee until you have a creamy whipped coffee ice cream.
Whereas normally you would soften an ice cream in the fridge before serving it, here it should be frozen hard.

 Intelliflix: Rent Belly Of An Architect on DVD
Greenaway has managed to acquire amazing locations (the Victor Emaneul Memorial, Baths of Caracalla, Pantheon) and one wishes he had filled them with a compelling story; but pretty pictures don't make a movie, and this quasi-operatic tale doesn't wash. For all the talk of meat and blood, this one is as cold as cadaver.
Greenaway's "Belly of An Architect" is visually stunning and philosophically entertaining.
It is about an idealistic American architect whose life swiftly declines at the precise moment he attains his life's ambition.

All the Italians are corrupt (why they seem to conspire against the hapless American is never clear; if it´s merely thievery, why are they so obvious?), the architect´s wife is a bit dim, the architect an arrogant American without the sense to ask for an audit when his precious exhibition is being ripped off.
Greenaway made a real jewel movie with this methaporical and painful story of an architect who goes to Italy with his wife attending a professional request.
But in the middle of the immortal treasures of the italñian culture, he will live the most terrible hell since his wife commits adultery and the awful fact, he is dying of cancer.

The story the film tells is about an American architect Stourley Kracklite (Brian Dennehy) who goes to Rome for 9 months with his wife Louisa (Chloe Webb) to mount an expedition for his favorite architect Etienne Louis Boulee.
The couple has no child because Webb has had several miscarriages, but she is impregnated on the train to Rome, and the birth cycle is paralleled to his father's death cycle that can be seen as being caused by his artistic creation going to hell.
Is Dennehy's decline caused by the suave young architect Caspasian (Lambert Wilson), who initially handles the finances of the project but as time goes on takes over both Dennehy's work and wife.

 The Belly of an Architect
Subverting or deepening the cliché about art that comes “from the guts” of its creator, The Belly of an Architect is all about the weird alchemy by which internal inspirations become huge, material spectacles which far outlive their progenitors.
The architect is a speck of a thing compared to what he builds, and once he has died, he isn’t even that.
The Belly of an Architect is possibly this director’s most psychologically ambitious movie, but the more Greenaway moves from Kracklite’s belly to his brain, the more he seems to find hidebound banalities of aging masculinity.

I even thought up a clever headline, "In the Belly of an Architect," which plays upon several themes and cannot be edited out now that I am devoting more than one or two sentences to it.
I know, there's nothing funny about architects, except maybe how seriously some of them take themselves, and how stupid some of their buildings look, but "architect"--come on, say it with me: "architect." It's kinda funny.
Here's an example from the National Institutes of Health: "A class of nutrients, isothiocyanates, found only in cruciferous vegetables--broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress, bok choy, among others--was protective against lung cancer in the study of a sample of 18,244 males, 45-64 years old, in Shanghai, China."

A doctor tells him that the sinister pains are due to his lifestyle, but he does not believe this diagnosis and drifts into a subdued paranoia with delusions of persecution and of grandeur.
Obsessed with the shapes and contents--the architecture and the anatomy--of bellies in sculpture, painting, and photography, Kracklite photocopies ever larger and larger images which he "maps" on to his own prodigious abdomen.

Architect Stourley Kracklite (Brian Dennehy) arrives in Rome, where an exhibition of the works of the 18th-century architect Etienne-Louis Boullée is being mounted under Kracklite’s supervision.
Or not: It could be that his wife Louisa (Chloe Webb), with whom he is traveling (and who is pregnant with his child), is poisoning him, a revenge for his self-absorption.
Which brings us back to the exhibition: Boullée’s architectural metaphor of choice was the oval, a detail that finds an echo in Louisa’s pregnancy and Kracklite’s gut; and, in fact, Kracklite soon discovers that Boullée’s life in many ways parallels his own.

 The Belly of an Architect (review)
I respect Dennehy as an actor, but geez, I can think of much more pleasant ways of spending the afternoon than seeing Dennehy fondle his belly repeatedly.
To be honest, Dennehy did a fine job with an obviously difficult role and the film seems to have a fine visual style, but Greenaway's story is so incomprehensible and dull that I can't see anyone enjoying this work.
The image is on the soft side, it's grainy, the color transfer is such that fleshtones have an orange tint, and (as if that weren't enough), there's a good amount of video noise thrown in as well.

So obsessed is Dennehy with this exhibition, not to mention himself, he doesn't realize his marriage with Chloe Webb is foundering and, like his father before him, he is dying of stomach cancer.

The soundtrack to the film is one of the few by Peter Greenaway that does not feature his usual partner in crime Michael Nyman.
An earlier release of this soundtrack did feature a few dramatic Brancian orchestral swells, but unfortunately this release (given the track listing) seems to have left these pieces off, which is a shame.
It also represents an excellent introduction to the works of two very under-rated yet important modern composers.

American architect Stourley Kracklite (Brian Dennehy) comes with his young wife Louisa (Chloe Webb) to Rome to supervise an exhibition devoted to Etienne-Louis Boullée, a French architect of the 18th century.
Suffering from severe abdominal pains, Stourley doesn't pay much attention to his pregnant wife, and she finds consolation in the arms of suave Caspasian Speckler (Lambert Wilson).
Built from rigidly symmetrical images, the film has quite an unusual subject: the belly -- both the sick one of the architect and the pregnant one of his wife, the rounded forms alluding to the spherical constructions designed by Boullée, the architect whose visionary projects seldom materialized.
