  1. 750.000 eura dobio gosn. greenaway 2009 godine od holandskog filmskog fonda za film o hendrick-u goltzius-u (dutchman koji je u 16 vijeku pravio erotske gravure).

    posljednji film koji je narucen, jeste film o jednom zamku u holandiji, takodjer iz 16 vijeka, amerongen se klice. ovdje sam par puta procitao kritike u kojima se kriticari pitaju, da li njega zanima umjetnost ili lova, nesto u tom smislu.

    izgleda da ‘dobra’ spika i lova idu zajedno, vidis kako covjek voli tushiti.
    zato je van gogh umro ko siromah;-)
