Peter Greenaway goes macabre and slightly political in this darkly funny early short. Inspired by a 1960s headline involving a rash of mysterious fatalities among South African inmates, WINDOWS wryly unspools the stories of thirty-seven people who fell to their deaths from windows. Juxtaposing these often humorous statistics recounted in deadpan voiceover with the carefully composed images from an idealized country home, this is Greenaway at his most absurd and perceptive.

Hilarious. Greenaway's wit and dry humor never cease to amuse and intrigue.
Cute short. Very dry -reminds me of a sanguine Monty Python skit.
I hated it..
