Director:Jerzy Skolimowski

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.
