I'm a 17th century mummer and what is this?
Might I suggest a "rape" tag?
Holy crap, you weren't kidding. From Wikipedia:
"The Bishop sentences her to death, but because she is still a virgin, she cannot be killed outright. The Daughter is instead sentenced to be raped 208 times, after which she is to be executed."
That's a very specific amount of rape, there. Was there an algorithm?
Actually, yes, they say it in the film IIRC. Something based on 13 that ends up being 13*13+13*3

This was, I think, the only Peter Greenaway movie I didn't see back when I was 16 and a fan.
Except I was 20, and experimenting with cinema, drugs, and women. 16, Zircon, 16??

Fingers still crossed for the adaptation set in Macon, Ga.

I rented this in a video store called The Movie Store in ~2002. The DVD case did not look like it was pirated or bootlegged.

Drop the name Greenaway and see how many of your friends are cinephiles and how many are posers.
I can safely say that having watched this a few years ago, I think the film is brilliant, although I still don't know if I /like/ it, per se.
