Maybe the New Wave’s most anarchic entry, Věra Chytilová’s absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously. DAISIES is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema. – Janus Films
“As subversive as it is hilarious.” – Kate Muir, Times (UK)
“One of the great outpourings of cinematic invention in an age of over-all artistic liberation.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
