Prix de la meilleure contribution artistique au Festival International du Film , 1988

Synopsis

" Drowning by numbers " is a curious tale of three women of the same name, whose solidarity for one another brings about three copy-cat drownings. Their husbands are the victims and the motive is dissatisfaction. The women are confident that their crimes will not be punished because they have in hopeless tow, a coroner who is in love with them. Or think he is.
The coroner and his eccentric young son are game-players, persuading everyone - friends, enemies, sheep, dogs and bees - to join them in their metaphorical games, treating sex and death- most especially death - as an elaborate game until they are finally outmanoeuvred by the women who resolve their difficulties in an amoral ending that suggests indeed that a Conspiracy of Women is unbeatable.
