In this symbolic tragedy, two men and a woman act like children in the aftermath of war. They care for each other but often revert to selfishness, as all social structure and morality have been shattered by the conflict.

Strictly speaking, this unscrewed film doesn't interest me, but a viewer should take account of the context, historical and social, in which the works are originated and in that sense i am interested in it as an allegory of a libertarian act, a sincere expression of an intention and its contemporary artistic expression - Soviet dictatorship, 60s agit prop & happenings. I do not like, et lasse, the expression itself.
69 erotic year. Noot much sex in this happening movie. This is sympaczech, nothing more. But today it has aged. === 69, année érotique. Bon, pas grand chose d'érotique dans ce film-happening. C'est sympathchèque, sans plus. Aujourd'hui ça ne casse plus 3 pattes à 1 canard.
An interesting play on estranging oneself from the madness of the world (and the shadow of the USSR) through foolishness and apparent nonchalant attitudes, similar to Chytilova's "Daisies." “Birds, Orphans and Fools” is yet another classic of the obscure Czech new wave that brings you under into potent yet nuanced blissful delirium. 'Only madness guarantees that you won't remain unhappy.'
