Cast:

Jitka Cerhová, Ivana Karbanová, Marie Češková

Boredom, bikinis and a blistering critique of the beauty myth. From its first seconds, Vera Chytilova’s (1929-2014) ever-fresh Daisies kicks wickedly against the pricks and feels as if it was made today.

An innovative and brilliantly absurd masterpiece of the ’60s Czech New Wave, the film was made three years before the Prague Spring but dissent is clearly in the air. Daisies follows the misadventures of two young women both called Marie (played by Jitka Cerhová and Ivana Karbanová), who rebelliously scam rich dates, cut off their own heads and wreck an official feast. The film’s anarchic attitude saw it banned by the Czech authorities and it stayed under wraps for years.

Some have called the film’s freewheeling rage against the world proto-riot grrrl, and the two Maries (defiantly unholy) are a total riot. If you haven’t caught up with this genuine feminist classic, see why it’s as thrilling now as it was fifty years ago.

Accompanying short film

We are delighted to make short films available to exhibitors booking specific features from Revolt, She Said at no extra cost. To accompany screenings of Daisies we will be screening Saute Ma Ville (Blow Up My Town).

Our advisory certificate for both films is 15.

Saute Ma Ville (Blow Up My Town)

Dir: Chantal Akerman | Belgium| 1968 | 13 mins | available on digital download

A caustic prelude to her masterpiece Jeanne Dielman. If you would like to screen Saute Ma Ville in addition to Daisies, simply state this in your email to bookings@independentcinemaoffice.org.uk.
