One of the most anarchic films of all time, Vera 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 is widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.
