Pillow Book, The

Three experiences make an indelible impression on a young girl's childhood: her father's tender calligraphy on her face and neck, the text of a noblewoman's sensual diary (or "pillow book"), and the discovery that her father is being blackmailed. These three images become a single obsession when the girl becomes a woman and meets a man who offers his body to her, both as a blank page to write upon and as a weapon of revenge.

NOTE: This film was made using multiple aspect ratios, and despite the "formatted to fit your screen" warning, this DVD has all the correct aspect ratios preferred by Director Peter Greenaway, as the transfer to DVD was personally supervised by him.
