Dir. Věra Chytilová
1966, Czechoslovakia, 76 min
Czech with English subtitles
New Restoration

Maybe the New Wave’s most anarchic entry, Věra Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two 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. Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.

Reviews

Chytilova understands the feminine decorum expected of women in Czech society, and she undermines it at every turn... Irrespective of the film's political specifics, it's this rebellious spirit that feels so fresh.
- Christina Newland, Little White Lies
These women are doing more than just dallying with liberation; they may let themselves be a bit spoiled, but will continue to break down social conventions in the process, and not let any of their feminist energy or dissenting attitudes go to waste.
- Katie Duggan, Screen Queens
