The "Swinging" Sixties
6 May 2020 | by lesallen-68268See all my reviews

Gritty is an overused word, but in the case of this black and white gem set in sixties London, it fulfils. The two young women making their way in the seedy metropolis come into contact with equally damaged male characters - the millionaire's son trying to escape the dominion of his father, and Bella's strait-laced school teacher father... This film certainly grips the atmosphere of the period and the casting is well honed... The thoughtful Bella and her slightly crazy flat mate, the downtrodden poor little rich kid, and the confused father all reveal their frailties and failings. I found it powerful and moving. This movie could have been made yesterday - the characters and their blighted city lives no less real almost six decades ago than today. A must see for students of dramatic theatre...
