    Ken Cameron tried to get up a film version of Helen Garner's novel in early 1979 but could not raise the budget of $553,000. Shooting was postponed until Patricia Lovell managed to get the money under 10BA tax regulations. However, by then costs had risen so much the film had to be made for $1 million. The film was shot in early 1981. The story is set in Melbourne but only one week of filming took place there. The Fitzroy Pool was recreated in Sydney's West Ryde pool. The iconic Deep Water Aqua Profonda sign was economically reused as the album cover in the film.
