A British flick from 1967. Whipping through the mod scene of swinging London, this frenetic and at times bizarre movie was delightful! It starts right of with the two stars, Lynn Redgrave and Rita Tushingham screaming through the title song, with some cool drawings like this one:
Pretty cool, huh? and then stuff like this happens:
The story is of these two girls who come into town determined to make a name for themselves. Yvonne, (Lynn Redgrave) sort of puts herself in charge, but she is all flighty and stuff, and then her sort of put-upon friend, Brenda (Rita Tushingham) sort of cleans up her friends messes, after getting out of her own messes. It sort of just goes from crazy scene to crazier scene as the girls luck into successes and failures. I just thought the movie was great. The color palette is amazing, the music is groovy and the characters are wacky and insane and weird. There are two probably overlong slapstick mess-making scenes, which are funny for a minute I guess. OK. Also, there are more songs, like musical-type songs, which are not sung in the movie, but describe the happenings from the characters point of view. It is a crazy cool movie. I mean, if you like that sort of thing.
