Deep End (1971)

Rating:R
Genre:Drama, Romance
Release Date:August 10, 1971
Running time:90 minutes
Cast:Jane Asher, John Moulder-Brown, Karl Michael Vogler, Christopher Sandford, Diana Dors
Director:Jerzy Skolimowski
Producer:Lutz Hengst
Writer:Jerzy Gruza, Helmut Jedele
Distributor:Paramount Pictures

Description: Set at the fag-end of the '60s in a decidedly unglamorous and unswinging London (though actually filmed, very persuasively, in Hamburg), Skolimowski's pleasingly skewed variation on the coming-of-age sex comedy posits a bizarre, totally unsentimental education for its adolescent protagonist (Moulder-Brown), a somewhat naïve school-leaver newly employed at a run-down swimming baths and obsessively pining for a colleague (Asher). Often very funny, and blessed with pounding Can numbers on the soundtrack, it's an original and offbeat delight whose mix of eccentricity and gentle social satire have ensured its enduring status as a cult movie. It's good to have it back in this new digital restoration.
