5.0 out of 5 stars An important reissue 2 Aug 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The BFI deserve much credit for finding, restoring and reissuing the feature films of the writer/director Jane Arden and her collaborator the producer/director Jack Bond. Feature length experimental films are rare but the Arden/Bond team risked this format three times. The first, 'Separation'(1967) ignores the conventions of narrative cinema and is driven by the events, memories and dreams of a woman - played by Arden herself - whose marriage is falling apart. Whilst it is certain to infuriate some viewers, for others it will be an absorbing experience. Arden and Bond seem to have been very much aware of the French New Wave, particularly Resnais and Godard, and the groundbreaking improvisations of John Cassavetes. Despite these influences 'Separation' is an original, thought-provoking film with the huge benefit of a strong cast, notably the enigmatic Ann Lynn and, playing the husband/psychiatrist figure, the great David de Keyser.

2.0 out of 5 stars THE MUSIC! THE MUSIC! 25 July 2009
I saw this movie at it's NFT screening in July 2009 and I can honestly say that the only good thing about this confusing and non sensical movie is the splending musical soundtrack performed by Procol Harum. The main song "Salad days (are here again)" fits in well with the scenne and the unreleased version of "Seperation" by Procol's Matthew Fisher is a great tune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew Fisher / Procol Harum Soundtrack 5 Feb 2011
By HC Phillips - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of 60s British B movies you may find this quirky art film interesting. I bought it to finally see the film that used Matthew Fisher's "Separation" as the main theme. I can't say I loved the film, but I found it an interesting experience.
