Hello!

Does anyone know what lenses were used for shooting MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE (1985) by Stephen Frears?

Thanks!

I think it was shot on 16mm - Oliver Stapleton has a website that might say or you can email him with the link on his site. http://www.cineman.co.uk/

I recently purchased his set of Canon K35s which he used on Absolute Beginners shot around the same time - they have a true circular iris so the out of focus highlights produce a wonderful circular bokeh but the lens coatings (or lack of) give double - treble kicks on in frame light sources - I love the flare just don't like the kicks.
