Belly of An Architect is a 1987 British-Italian film directed by Peter Greenaway. Its soundtrack is a result of the collaboration between Wim Mertens and Glenn Branca.

The film tells us the story of American architect Stourley Kracklite who's visiting Rome for an exhibition of 18th century architect Etienne-Louis Boullée. He's suffering from a severe belly ache, as a result giving his pregnant wife (two bellies) not enough attention which prompts her to make advances to another man.

Greenaway is known for his cynical comedies with a minimal plot, augmented by lush and surreal photography. The Mertens soundtrack fits the story and visuals like a glove with its minimal, neo classical repetitive themes. Greenaway also frequently worked together with acclaimed minimalist Michael Nyman.
