This movie just blew me away - easily the best I saw in 2011. Everything is perfect here, the performances, the visual beauty, the storytelling. We start out chuckling at a wry coming of age comedy and finish up with our jaws on the floor at the sheer audacity of the ending. The icing on the cake is a pair of genius cameos from Diana Dors and Bert Kwouk. The justly famous scene in Soho set to Can's Mother Sky is unforgettable, from the endless hotdogs to the prostitutes record player, to the cardboard cut-out - I'm raving, just please see this movie. The blu ray picture is incredible and the feature length documentary fascinating. An essential purchase for any movie lover.

Asher was really pretty in her youth, I can see why Skolimowski was so obsessed.There isn't really enough nudity given that the plot is so threadbare but for me it is a period piece, rarely, if ever, reprised in the cinema or on television.

A film I remember. Beautiful and typically 70s. An absolute must if you're nostalgic for the period and culture in which you were either born or grew up in.

I want this soundtrack to soundtrack my life. beautifully shot. Jane Asher is dazzling, slight surreal humour works very well throughout. Thanks to BFI!

Hypnotic curio and a time warp - but oddly compelling in its way.

Not one of Jane Asher's better films, but okay
