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.

There are two schools of surrealism: the formal jesuitical approach of Breton and the quiet madness of Duchamps. Sadly, this film is all Breton with not even a dash of Duchamps. Things like this drove Margret back to Brussels and pickled Dali in mustache wax. The horror, the horror. This is a genuinely bad movie that doesn't even let its own jokes be funny. The two fey girls are only occasionally actually out of control and spend most of their time messing up food: anti-sexism of the most limited of perspectives. Gnashing of teeth!

Psychedelic-era silliness from Prague Spring, just prior to August '68 Soviet takeover, when all such things were brought to an abrupt end.

This film is about two young female roommates that are just JERKS. and maybe a little criminal too. These gals are mean and cruel to everyone they encounter and show no remorse or guilt about it. It' as if they think that they have a right to be mean about cruel and uncaring to the whole world, As such, I don't get what this film is all about or what statement the filmmaker was trying to make here. I've read a couple of reviews of this film that called it "feminist" but I disagree. Feminism is about demanding equal gender rights and allowing a women to mold her own individual identity, and has NOTHING to do with being mean and cruel and uncaring to everybody, both men and women alike. These two gals are not feminists. They are just mean spirited JERKS, and I don't see the sense about making a film about that. How these two mean spirited JERKS ever found each other is beyond me.

Ah, the indiscreet charms of the young female bourgeoisie! Delightfully provocative satire of sexist and capitalist culture. An amazing film, particularly considering that it was made in Eastern Europe in 1966. It reminds me, I'd like to see "WR: Mysteries of an organism" again.

The repeated sounds in the beginning made it hard to continue. Most unpleasant.
