1960s British drama written by and starring Jane Arden. The film follows the breakdown of a middle-aged woman after the collapse of her marriage during London’s ‘Swinging Sixties’. Through her own fragmented visions, her past and future are explored.
Separation 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 Procul Harum music and Mark Boyle light show) of the film’s setting.
