Two self-confessed hedonists wreak wanton havoc in Věra Chytilová's visually spectacular neo-dadaist farce.

Comedy 1966 73 mins

Director: Věra Chytilová


Věra Chytilová's neo-dadaist farce is full of extravagant visual effects, sensuous décor and fascinating experiments with colour. Two teenage girls (Marie I and Marie II) stumble through a series of happenings, exploit middle-aged men and engage in orgies of eating, interspersed with sun bathing. Full of enthusiasm and joie de vivre, the film mixes social observation, feminist comment and formal experiment in one exhilarating journey.
