Daisies

One of the most anarchic films of all time, Vera Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two bored but brash young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously. An aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema, world acclaim for the film earned Chytilová banishment from making another film for almost a decade. “A philosophical documentary in the form of a farce.”—Vera Chytilová.
