Directed by Věra Chytilová | 1977

With Dagmar Bláhová, Jiří Menzel, Jiří Kodet

Chytilová had been forced by Communist censors into artistic silence for seven years when an international outcry prompted her return to filmmaking. Her comeback was this bold, feminist take on the battle of the sexes farce, a commercial success that re-established her as a leading light of Czech cinema. Centered on a love triangle between the staff members of a maternity ward, The Apple Game is remarkable for both its anti-patriarchal perspective and unflinching, almost documentary-like treatment of childbirth and abortion.
