Daisies (Sedmikrásky)
A film by Věra Chytilová
Czechoslovakia, 1966

Special Blu-ray Edition

"An amazing explosion of pop-art colours, absurdist humour and proto-feminist politics... It’s a trip, a surreal manifesto, a joy to behold" Sukhdev Sandhu, The Telegraph

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

Věra Chytilová’s classic of surrealist cinema is perhaps also one of the most adventurous and anarchic movies of the 1960s. Daisies remains a cinematic enigma. Refreshingly uncompromising, it continues to provoke, stimulate and entertain audiences and its influence is still felt today.
