DEEP END (DVD + Blu-ray)
A Film by Jerzy Skolimowski
THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.
Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses after his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the 'special services' he is expected to perform for clients (including the superb Diana Dors).
Darkly comic and utterly compelling, this portrait of Britain in an era of uncertainty makes its long overdue return to the screen in a new digital restoration with extensive bonus features.
- Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition
- Starting Out: The Making of Jerzy Skolimowski's Deep End (2011, 74 mins): a comprehensive new feature-length documentary
- Deep End: The Deleted Scenes (2011, 12 mins): short documentary exploring the scenes that never made the grade
- Original theatrical trailer
- Careless Love (Francine Winham, 1976, 10 mins): rare and disturbing tale in which a woman (Jane Asher) takes drastic action to keep the affections of the man she loves
- Illustrated booklet featuring new essays by David Thompson, Yvonne Tasker, and Skolimowski expert Ewa Mazierska

The story: It's 15 year old Mike's (John Moulder-Brown) first day of work, after leaving school, and he's eager to make a good impression. And Susan (Jane Asher), who's in her mid-20's, is tasked with showing him around the bath house. She explains that there's good tips to be made, by providing "extra" services to the clients ... she'll service the blokes, and it's expected that young Mike will service the ladies. Throughout, Susan behaves in an unusual manner towards Mike - often affectionate, but occasionally distant. And in no time at all, Mike's fallen in love. His efforts to attract Susan become desperate, especially after he discovers she's engaged to be married. From quick gropes in the cinema, to ending up in a brothel, Mike's journey is both interesting and entertaining. Everything culminates with a naked romp in the deep end of the baths ...
I was initially attracted to the film after discovering that the beautiful 24 year old Jane Asher got fully naked. Yet there's far more to the film than that, and I find that this movie captures what was perhaps a final glimpse into the charm and naiveté of 1960's culture. Aspects of the film are fun, it's sometimes sexy, but ultimately it's tragic.
There are a host of bonus features - including a detailed retrospective 'making of' documentary. Also included is the short film "Careless Love" (1976), again featuring Asher, which is a truly shocking drama (somewhat akin to a 'tale of the unexpected'). And a deluxe booklet comes with the discs, providing lots of production information and some colour photos.
Overall, I highly recommend this movie.
I've banged on about this film for years much to people's blank expressions! A true rarity has finally got the official release it deserves. I'm pressing pre-order now, and cannot wait to replace my scratchy old 'copy' for this.
A true heartbreaking, sad and thought provoking film. This was emo before emo! If you've seen and enjoyed the recent British indie film The Scouting Book For Boys then you'll really love this.
The beatiful and radiant Jane Asher for the boys, and the sensitive, seemingly angelic John Moulder Brown for the girls. Plus a deeply unsettling cameo from Diana Dors!
The flipside of 60s London, this is the celluloid version of the morning after the swinging parties. As such it's probably a much truer reflection and time capsule of that life.
Brilliant score by Cat Stevens, the haunting 'I Might Die Tonight' will remain with you just as much as the images within this film.
