Deep End

Though its main locale is a rather seamy London public bath, director Jerzy Skolimowski has avoided tawdriness by a sympathy in, and awareness of, the excessive but essentially pure actions of his love-smitten boy whose good looks make him prey for all types of women who come for their public ablutions.

Though its main locale is a rather seamy London public bath, director Jerzy Skolimowski has avoided tawdriness by a sympathy in, and awareness of, the excessive but essentially pure actions of his love-smitten boy whose good looks make him prey for all types of women who come for their public ablutions.

Film gives the British scene a twist due to Skolimowski’s treatment of the tangled desires of a young boy whose need for love goes to a rather vulgar, but enticing fellow worker at the baths.

John Moulder-Brown has the deep voice of the time between puberty and manhood and the childish yet dedicated pursuit of his first deeply troubled reaction to a woman.

Skolimowski keeps the film alive with quirky incidents.
