Ovoce stromů rajských jíme

Věra Chytilová Czechoslovakia, 1970

Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Fruit of Paradise

Strange world we all live in sometimes, although only Chytilova could create such beauty & wonder in this film. Like her pervious DAISIES, she uses all kinds of unique techinques in the filmmaking process (note the opening sequence!) and tells a different kind of story of people living in this world different from the one with Adam & Eve. Whimsical, sensual, and bit dark - it was made the same year Jires did VAHOW.
