Daisies (1966)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Flower Girls

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Daisies (1966, Facets Video) starts out like a bad 1960s student art film, but its colorful anarchy grows on you. Director Vera Chytilová tells this loosely-knit story of two young women who decide that the world has gone bad and so have they. They wander around trying to get into trouble any way they can, from stealing corn from a farmer's field and littering the ground with shuckings, or breaking into a banquet hall and having a food fight. Daisies was banned for some time, but Facets' bold new DVD restores it to its full potency.
