A Zed and Two Noughts is a film directed by Peter Greenaway. "A Zed and Two Noughts" turns out to be a British way to spell "zoo". A woman named Alba Berwick is driving outside a zoo when a swan which apparently escaped from the zoo smashes into her windshield. The two protagonists of A Zed and Two Noughts (Z.O.O) are confronted with two deaths whose circumstances undermine their certainties. Unable to let it rest as an Act of God, they demand some sort of satisfaction. One brother, unable to countenance the inevitable decay of his wife's body, tries to photograph death itself as he records the decay of animal corpses.

Editorial Reviews. Like most Peter Greenaway films, the appeal of A Zed & Two Noughts is totally subjective. It all depends on one's tolerance for non-narrative filmmaking. Greenaway never gives the viewer an easy way into the film: plot details are doled in an off-hand, irregular fashion and the characters speak to each other in a series of cryptic sound bites dense with artistic and Actors: Andréa Ferréol, Brian Deacon, Eric Deacon.

Audience Reviews for A Zed and Two Noughts My first foray into the work of Peter Greenaway, a filmmaker I have heard much about, and 75%.

A Zed and Two Noughts, released inis probably the most clinical and abstract of his 80s films and on the surface the one that’s most detached emotionally.

My main reason for focusing on this one is that the imagery and concept is the one that’s stuck in my head, as well as that I’ve sampled some dialogue from that was used in my.

"A Zed & two Noughts" refers openly and with great admiration to the paintings of Johannes Vermeer van Delft. "A Zed & two Noughts" is not easy film to watch, its characters are not sympathetic, it lacks warmth and sentimentality but as always in Greenaway's.

14 hours ago A Zed & Two Noughts () – dir. Peter Greenaway Starring the Deacon brothers (Brian and Eric) as twins dealing with personal losses, A Zed & Two Noughts is a pretty twisted picture, even when taking into account Peter Greenaway’s other works. Long before he started trying to recreate books and hypercard stacks in cinematic form, The Pillow Book director Peter Greenaway still betrayed his fascination with categorization in every lush, grotesque feature he made.

After two decades of documentaries and experimental films, he made the leap to narrative features with 's The Draughtsman's Contract, but the film's artificial Author: Tasha Robinson.

One of his early features, A Zed and Two Noughts (, aka ZOO), clearly encapsulates both these aspects, and reveals as well an unusual rhetorical structure. In terms of form, the visual language is rich in symmetries and symbols which reinforce the evolving construction of the scenario.

For example, in A Zed & Two Noughts, Greenaway’s second feature, a whore gleefully tells bedside stories about sex with frogs, and when an accident victim loses her leg, her sinister physician encourages her to chop off the other because it seems so lonely.3/4.

Alba survives the accident although she loses one leg, and her sinister physician eventually. Me immediately after watching A Zed and Two Noughts: I loved the visuals and music but found the plot pretty dull.

Unlike The Draughtsman's Contract, which has a compelling plot and characters, A Zed and Two Noughts, much like Drowning by Numbers, suffers from pacing and Greenaway's purposefully confusing dialogue.’s A ZED AND TWO NOUGHTS is probably Greenaway’s most potent exploration yet of his favorite themes: sex, death and decay.
