Directed by Věra Chytilová | 1963

With Věra Uzelacová, Eva Bosáková, Josef Langmiler

The iconoclastic style and subversive social commentary that Chytilová would soon unleash in full force in Daisies is already on display in her stunning first feature, which intercuts two parallel stories: one a documentary about an Olympic gymnast, the other a narrative about an alienated housewife. The result is an unsung landmark of feminist cinema, the opening shot in a war against patriarchal oppression that Chytilová would spend a career fighting.
