Deep End (1971, USA/GER) C-88m. ** D: Jerzy Skolimowski. Starring Jane Asher, John Moulder-Brown, Karl Michael Vogler, Diana Dors, Louise Martini, Burt Kwouk. Coming-of-age tale set in London about shy fifteen-year-old Moulder-Brown, whose first job is being a bath house attendant. He falls in love with colleague Asher, who's a few years older and more experienced, and he feels the first pangs of puberty. Awkward, downbeat drama doesn't seem special, though this has cult film status in some circles. One song is by Cat Stevens.
