Directed by Věra Chytilová | 1998

With Zuzana Stivínová, Miroslav Donutil, Tomáš Hanák

Chytilová hits toxic masculinity where it hurts in this audacious blend of rape revenge film and absurdist comedy in which a veterinarian makes use of her surgical skills to get emasculating retribution on the men who assaulted her. A furiously angry takedown of rape culture couched in the guise of an outré slapstick farce, Traps finds the late-career Chytilová as edgy and daringly confrontational as ever.
