Daisies (Region 1) - Vera Chytilova
Releasedatum: 26 maart 2002
Two teenage girls decide that since the world is spoiled they will be spoiled as well; accordingly they embark on a series of destructive pranks in which they consume and destroy the world about them. The girls' amorality leads to an apocalyptic climax in which they sample, eat, and destroy a huge banquet, trampling on the food in their stiletto heels and swinging from the chandelier. After giving them a ritual ducking, the film ends with an ironic dedication - to all those who get upset only at the sight of a trampled lettuce! Vera Chytilova's outrageous and innovative film marries slapstick with the avant garde in an orgy of visual delights, sensuous decor, and experiments with colour. Vera Chytilova was one of the leading directors of the Czech 'New Wave', and her radical and feminist work is ripe for reappraisal. She also proves that innovation, politics and entertainment can co-exist.
