Deep End 15 rating

Jerzy Skolimowski’s darkly comic and utterly compelling story of teenage infatuation in a run-down swimming pool.

Drama 1970 92 mins

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, who earned a BAFTA nomination for her role) whilst collecting tips for the 'special services' he is expected to perform for clients (including Diana Dors).

Written by Poles and largely filmed in West Germany (also the source of its famous Can score), but catching the dilapidated feel of turn-of-the-‘70s London with uncanny precision, Deep End pulls few psychological punches in charting Mike's teenage infatuation. But who is ultimately exploiting whom?
