Introduction by Reverse Shot.
One of the most anarchic films of all time, Vera 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. An aesthetically and politically adventurous film that’s widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema, Janus Films is proud to present Daisies in a new 35mm print.
