A film by Jack Bond
Separation, scripted and starring Jane Arden, concerns the inner life of a woman during a period of breakdown – marital, and possibly mental. Her past and (possible?) future are revealed through a fragmented but brilliantly achieved and often humorous narrative, in which dreams and desires are as real as the ‘swinging’ London (complete with Procol Harum music and Mark Boyle light show) of the film’s setting.
