DEEP END is a sexually charged coming of age story of a young high school drop-out who starts working in a decrepit London bath house, becoming desperately infatuated with a twenty-something coworker (Jane Asher).
Directed by the Polish master, Skolimowski, the film shows us grey skies of London at the end of the swinging sixties, accompanied by a soundtrack of Cat Stevens and Can, make this an unforgettable film that has grown an underground following in more recent years.
“Deep End is bravely ambiguous and disjointed, lurching unpredictably between comedy and creepiness; but the characters are bracingly down to earth. Asher, in particular, has the looks of a supermodel but the cosiness of a tea lady. In fact, everything about this singular film – the camerawork, the imagery, the soundtrack – feels vibrant and surprising in a way that makes most modern coming-of-age movies look formulaic and, well, shallow.” Steve Rose, Guardian
DEEP END is the second of four films selected by Fabrica’s Fresh Perspectives group.
