Daisies (Sedmikrásky)
A film by Věra Chytilová

Czechoslovakia, 1966

 

Re-mastered Blu-ray Edition

 

Presented from newly remastered materials, Second Run are delighted to present a new Blu-ray Special Edition of one of our most popular tiles - the glorious Daisies.

 

Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema is perhaps also the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960s.

 

A satirical, wild and irreverent story of rebellion. Two young women revolt against a degenerate, decayed and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture.

Defiant feminist statement? Nihilistic, avant-garde comedy? A riotous, punk-rock poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative, Daisies remains a cinematic enigma. Refreshingly uncompromising, it continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain audiences and its influence is still felt today.
