Director Peter Greenaway
originally wanted to shoot some scenes in the famous Cologne Cathedral, but couldn't: "...we had planned to use the cathedral of Cologne, but two days before we began our preparations, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover
(1989) was shown on German television and the archbishop immediately forbade us from entering the cathedral site!" The scenes were finally shot in the remodeled Old Church of Amsterdam ("Oude Kerk"). ["P.G.: Interviews", 2000] See more
