Product Description

Regular weekly meetings in a Turkish Bath in London bring eight women of varying backgrounds to a greater understanding of each other, of themselves, and of their own relationships with the men in their lives.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2.4 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Black & White, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: This is a story of a group of women overcoming several obstacles by helping each other out, even if that means just listening. Seven different women whose backgrounds are filled in by flashbacks and narration are together in a steambath on ladies' day. Violet (Diana Dors) is the maternal manager of the steambath, and one of the issues to be resolved is how to save the bath from being shut down by the authorities. Nancy (Vanessa Redgrave) is suddenly a single mother of three after being deserted by her husband. Her good friend Sarah (Sarah Miles) has neither children nor husband, even an ex-husband, yet she can empathize with Nancy's increasing loneliness. Josie (Patti Love) is an outgoing, talkative woman whose sex life is her main interest at the moment, and other women include a somewhat reserved mother-and-daughter duo (Brenda Bruce and Felicity Dean). Personal traumas are revealed and shared, and a plan to save the steambath is also cooked up. This was to be the last film for both Diana Dors and Joseph Losey who died not long after the feature was wrapped. ...Steaming

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting as a Diana Dors document 27 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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).

I enjoyed this film. it's about a group of women fighting to save the local baths from being closed. The women from all different backgrounds discover things about each other that they never knew and a wonderful bond is made.

2.0 out of 5 stars Second rate film. 10 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought it because of the first class cast and the storyline but it is a boring, no more than adequately acted film with an amateurish performance from Diana Dors playing the standard tough middle aged woman part of her later years.
