Overview

Food fights, feminist psychedelia, eye-popping surrealism, freewheeling farce, whimsical beauty and cerebral ruminations on existence. A cultural touchstone and mandatory viewing for any film buff worth their stuff, Daisies is a revolutionary and beautifully shot cult classic of the Czech New Wave from director Věra Chytilová. Teenage friends Marie I (Jitka Cerhová) and Marie II (Ivana Karbanová) decide that since the world around them is spoiled, they’ll be spoiled too. Accordingly, they embark on a series of ruinous pranks to increasingly delightful and absurd effect.

Why You Should See This Film

Released just two years before the Prague Spring, Daisies was swiftly banned by the Czech government — labelled as “depicting the wanton” and leading to an industry-wide exile for Chytilová. Could we give it any higher praise than that? With butterfly collections, 1920s-style speakeasies, bathing suits, armchair philosophy and chandelier destruction, it’s a one-of-a-kind film experience that must be seen in the cinema (or else).
