Ovoce stromů rajských jíme

Věra Chytilová Czechoslovakia, 1970

Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Fruit of Paradise

Flower power, psychedelism, peace & love all that was new and fine in the late sixties. This film may have been fine then, for Polish & Czechoslovak viewers. We had Courrèges, Jean-Christophe Averty, Mary Quant, Vidal Sassoon, Carnaby Street, the Beatles or Brian Jones's hair cut & all that was a tremendous fashion and energy. 45 years later it has kept a fresh spirit, but it looks also outdated and frankly boring.
