Directed by Věra Chytilová | 1966

With Jitka Cerhová, Ivana Karbanová, Marie Češková

The most radical film of the Czechoslovak New Wave is part live-action cartoon, part patriarchy-exploding Molotov cocktail in which a pair of proudly “spoiled” sisters-in-revolt channel their disillusionment with society into gleeful destruction. A riot of retina-bewildering optical effects, Daisies was famously banned for its flagrant depiction of food wastage, but it’s clear what really scared censors: the film’s defiantly anti-authoritarian vision of smash-it-all rebellion, which has rarely looked so downright fun.
