it would be possible to date this film from almost any frame
4 October 2019 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Very much of its time, this Jane Arden project, directed by Jack Bond may perplex today's viewers but was one of several similar experimental films in the late 60s that tried to find new ways, visually, to tell a story. Crisp and arty black and white photography is supplemented here and there by stunning full colour liquid light creations by Mark Boyle. Though the film barely has a linear structure it holds the attention through the beautiful images and somewhat disturbing repeated lines of dialogue. There may not be as many elements of 'swinging London' as some would like but the film as a whole is a striking example and I would have thought that it would be possible to date this film from almost any frame. On a point of order, it has been mentioned that the park seen a few times might be Maryon Park, in Charlton, South London, the park used by Antonioni in Blow Up. This is clearly not so and my guess would be Holland Park.
