The Pillow Book (Peter Greenaway)

The Pillow Book

Peter Greenaway

A Japanese girl, haunted by a ritual of calligraphy on her skin, seeks the man who will make her body a living book. Greenaway’s boundless experimentation makes for a powerful drama, inspired by the poetic musings of Sei Shōnagon and her “Things That Make the Heart Grow Fonder”.
