Athens, Georgia – For tonight’s viewing pleasure, Věra Chytilová’s Daisies . I stumbled upon this film while researching images for an entirely different film by a completely different director. This kicky piece is non-linear in plot as well as visually arresting. The set designer and costume designer (if there was one) did a solid job. The various looks (the actresses adorn) are adorably timeless in that middle-to-late 1960s period of young womens’ fashion. The film’s featured performers, Jitka Cerhová and Ivana Karbanová, were non-pros who did a fantastic job as Marie I and Marie II, a pair of happy-go-lucky nihilists who con middle-aged men into piling them food and drink because the world is going to end eventually. Right?!
Many thanks to myself – for falling into another rando-Internet manhole of gold.
