Four Storms & Two BabiesA Love Story

Peter Greenaway - Four Storms & Two Babies
Le script du film de Peter Greenaway, qui explore l'amour, le désir et la parentalité à partir d'un triangle amoureux entre deux hommes et une femme sous l'orage.
A woman, restless for some meaningful experience in the search for love, meets a man in search of sex. They both take a chance of finding what they want and sleep together in a thunderstorm. The man falls in love; the woman falls for the sex.
The woman meets a second man and is intrigued. They sleep together in a second thunderstorm, and, knowing perhaps now how to do it, she falls in love; he falls for the sex.
A familiar eternal emotional triangle has developed.
In the presence of the woman, the men meet, quarrel and fight. The woman makes an uneasy peace between them. Through her the men become intrigued in one another. The woman knows she has a choice to make. Take love but not give it. Give love but not take it. She takes a chance to find love a second time. On her suggestion, all three sleep together in a third thunderstorm. The men are mutually attracted. They seek sex and maybe love with one another. The woman retreats, persuaded to drop out of the emotional triangle.
After the night of three-way sex, the woman discovers she is pregnant and decides to have the baby. She is not interested to know which of the two men is the father. The two potential fathers are invited to the birth of twins, two boys. The two men become fathers without knowing who is the father – two babies for two fathers. As a fourth thunderstorm approaches, the woman leaves for a distant country, still restless for some meaningful experience, leaving the babies with their fathers.
