As an allegory it lacks any resonance, as a movie it stinks.

Seems to drag and become tiresome and overlong even at only 74 minutes.

The film's daisies are young girls who have reached pubescence, and are fully aware of their sexual power, but aren't ready to embrace it, so they test it first.

One of the great outpourings of cinematic invention in an age of over-all artistic liberation.

My favorite Czech film, and surely one of the most exhilarating stylistic and psychedelic eruptions of the 60s, this madcap and aggressive feminist farce by Vera Chytilova explodes in any number of directions.

Daisies starts out like a bad 1960s student art film, but its colorful anarchy grows on you.

Two zany young teenage girls are the focus of this extremely funny, witty and expertly-fashioned film.

These two slim, mod beauties revel in their infantile defilement before swinging from chandeliers and catwalking down the buffet table.

From elderly apparatchiks to cinematic continuity, nothing is sacred, as the director punctures the illusion of "civilized" society and viewer's frontal lobes.

Brace yourself for some of the most exuberant and disjunctive Pop Art imagery ever put onscreen, including scenes in which the scissors-happy hedonists shred not only objects and each other but the movie itself.

[A] surreal, sexy, socialist pre-Prague Spring daydream: artful anarchy rules with bonus "mod" pop-art eyeball-kick fashion.
