The Film Club scale: Dong took no fag breaks, but it would be fair to say he didn't delight in Greenaway's artfulness; Shazzerooneypoos made not a single wuffling noise and really liked the film (but couldn't quite explain why, which is entirely fair enough); Slocombe's pithy quote is "more absorbing than a Kleenex"; Frankenkeith turned up just as the closing credits had rolled so has no opinion on this one at all, but enjoyed some wine and Armagnac into the small hours of Monday morning.
Will you like it? Not a clue. But if you're a Greenaway virgin and want to give his work a try, I'd recommend one of the other titles that I've mentioned above for starters.
Here's a taster stolen from YouTube, it's quite a long excerpt but I do recommend you give it a go if for no other reason than to enjoy Nyman's music.
