Directed by Věra Chytilová | 1970

With Jitka Nováková, Karel Novák, Jan Schmid

Opening with a senses-ravishing, psychedelic vision of Eden, this tantalizing political allegory sets the story of Adam and Eve in a European health spa where a vacationing couple find themselves under the spell of a menacing stranger. A triumph of avant-garde provocation, Fruit of Paradise was Chytilová’s last film before the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia effectively quashed her career for the next seven years.

The most radical film of the Czechoslovak New Wave is a gleeful vision of smash-it-all rebellion.
