Feminist fable, surreal slapstick comedy, and formalist visual fantasia all in one, Vera Chytilová's 1966 Czech New Wave landmark follows two free-spirited girls as they episodically eat, drink, food-fight, resist male control, and generally illustrate the fine line between goofing off and inciting revolution. Chytilová's style is as giddily carefree as her characters, too, full of visual flamboyance, whimsical sound design, and pranksterist jump-around editing. But despite (and, to be sure, because of) its madcap streak, Daisies remains a potent shot across the bow of both regressive political institutions and the torpid social realism through which their propagandas have operated.
