This really is a tripped-out look into cool 60s London, the fashions, sexy energy & psychadelia aplenty. So much going on that you really need to watch more than once.
An eccentric professor (Jack MacGowran) discovers a hole in the wall through which he can see into the apartment of Penny (Jane Birkin), the beautiful young model living next door. He becomes completely obsessed by Penny and her bizarre world - fashion models, photographers, parties, drugs, sex and music.
You may know Jane Birkin as the famous voice on the 'Je t'aime' song...
As a product of swinging London in the 60s, I bought this film expecting to be transported back to those wild, delicious times. It didn't happen much. There are certainly a number of authentic touches: psychedelic cars, flamboyantly-clad models, Penny Lane's brilliantly decorated and furnished flat (that's extreme - and bang on!), and a predominance of fashion photographers. Accompanying all the extravagant visuals we have George Harrison's soundtrack, dominated by the wailing sitar and reminiscent in turn of Revolver or Magical Mystery Tour, though sadly never as melodic as either.
Our cameo portraits of the 60s are glimpsed as the prof presses his eye to the wall, where he witnesses exactly what you'd expect for the time: drugs, sex, music, models, photography, plus the usual boyfriend-girlfriend dramas. However, don't expect to see people tripping out on LSD or having wild, explicit sex - there's none of that. The prof's episodes of voyeurism are interspersed with fantasy sequences, increasingly of the prof getting together with Penny. These sequences are sometimes amusing, sometimes visually striking, sometimes pointless. Jane Birkin usually provides the eye candy, and without her you're left thinking that the fantasy sequences would often be pretty tedious.
The film does give you some tastes of the 60s, though 'Blow-up' and 'Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush' evoke the period far better. The strongest thing about the film is the striking use of colour.Read more ›
