I recalled this film from when I saw it on late night TV back in the very early 1980's. My recollection was that of a spirited, female dominated story set in a sauna baths. And this is exactly what it is! The performances from Vanessa Redgrave and Sarah Miles are of the quality you'd expect. The supporting characters are both strong and cringe-worthy in equal measure.
I won't give away the fairly flimsy story, such as it is, but there's gossip, nudity, revelations, nudity, intrigue, nudity, discussion, nudity, relationships, nudity, swearing, nudity, campaigning and... streaming! And did I mention nudity? Well, it is set in a sauna baths on 'women only' day! If you revel in nostalgic British drama that feels like you're watching fringe theatre, then I think you'll enjoy this fluff. Oh, and Diana Dors is a real treat, not a big role, but you have to love a bit of Dors (which is really all you get).
