Jigsaw

Women behaving bizarrely

(Edit) 23/04/2020

A seedy sixties Brighton backdrop provides the saving grace to this woefully dated film. The male cast carry off their roles passably with the help of a reasonable script. However the women (particularly Yolande Donlan as Jean) appear to have staggered off the set of Village of the Damned, so bizarre are their appalling lines and the deranged method of delivering them. This unfortunate pair swoon, weep and wimper their way through the film in a painful fashion. Sadly this harks back to a time when women in film were depicted as decorative airheads unable to function without a male to prop them up. Thankfully we’ve moved on somewhat and this disgracefully sexist writing wouldn’t make the grade today.
