The Garden of Earthly Delights (Ogród rozkoszy ziemskich) is a 2004 film by the Polish director Lech Majewski. It follows two lovers as they roam Venice, Italy.


Claudine is a British art scholar who has a terminal case of throat cancer. She is in Venice to give a lecture on the Bosch triptych from which the film gets its name.

Claudine is accompanied in Venice by her lover, Chris, a nautical engineer. Together they explore the canals of Venice. Chris has brought his video camera, and the audience watches Claudine and Chris hang out, make love, swim, converse, rent an apartment, and recreate vignettes from the triptych.
