Deep End 1970 15

88 mins Federal Republic of Germany Director. Jerzy Skolimowski

Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses after his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the 'special services' he is expected to perform for clients (including Diana Dors). Darkly comic and utterly compelling, acclaimed director Jerzy Skolimowski paints a compelling portrait of Britain in a era of uncertainty.

This title is also available on DVD / Blu-ray in the BFI’s Flipside collection.
