I got hold of a copy of George Harrison's soundtrack for the film a while ago. I was intrigued to see how the predominantly Indian music fitted into the film. I enjoy the surrealism of the late sixties in any case, so I was intrigued to see what this film offered. It's a watchable enough film for its genre and though the plot is thin, it works as a curiosity piece from a very particular period in British cinema. Maybe not a classic, but I'm happy enough to add it to my collection as an insight to a very distinctive decade in art, music and film.

Made in 1968, this weird and wonderful movie has a psychedelic soundtrack by 'Beatle' George Harrison (also features Eric Clapton)
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...

The plot for this film is very basic: eccentric, loner professor (Jack MacGowran) living in ultra-cluttered home spies through hole (later holes) in the wall on swinging, psychedelic household next door and fantasises increasingly about Penny Lane (Jane Birkin), the girl living there with her boyfriend.

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.

This is very much a film of its time. Made in and for an era meant to be laden with 'sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll', this shows its age. However, this doesn't matter really for this is an off the wall (or through the wall) movie and is as strange today as it was some 50 years ago. The music soundtrack (by George Harrison) has a heavily influenced Indian feel, with choice of instruments and melodies that follow the traditional paths of eastern culture. Two actors of note are Jack MacGowran and a very young Jane Birkin. But apart from cameo appearances from a few older 'stars', there is little star quality in this film. Great to see cigarettes from the 60's advertised (remember No.6)? I think you need to be high to fully appreciate this film, or drunk, or both. I bought it out of sheer sentimentality - but it wasn't as entertaining as the first time I saw it. Both the film and I have become older, neither of which unfortunately seem to have aged that well. 4 out of five for sentimentality and entertainment.
