Filmforum is happy to bring the Los Angeles premieres of two Peter Greenaway films, with imported 35mm prints!  The first, Rembrandt’s J’Accuse, is on June 3, and the second, Nightwatching, is on June 17.  The two are closely related, fictional and documentary interpretations of Rembrandt and the painting The Night Watch.

Nightwatching (2007, 35mm, Color, 134 mins.)
Netherlands/Great Britain/Finland/Germany
With: Martin Freeman, Eva Birthistle, Jodhi May, Emily Holmes
Trailer: http://www.videosurf.com/nightwatching-83499

Nightwatching, Greenaway’s fictional foray into art-history detecting, was made a year before the more spare Rembrandt’s J’Accuse  Greenaway takes a fictional approach to the painter’s life, portraying Rembrandt’s relations with three women, his wife, his model, and his servant, during the creation of his masterpiece, The Night Watch.  It focuses on the painter himself, played with gusto by Martin Freeman (The Office; Sherlock). Shifting between Rembrandt’s relations with the three women, and the complications that arise when he accepts a commission to paint a group portrait, Nightwatching uses a series of elegant tableaux to dramatize two mysteries -- that of Rembrandt’s life, of which little is known, and that of the iconography of his famous painting The Night Watch. Intertwining it all is a murder.
