Two teenage girls, Marie I and Marie II, decide to "go bad", breaking the rules of patriarchal society in this experimental, allegorical masterpiece directed by Věra Chytilová (1929-2014), herself an outstanding female figure of the greatest decades of Czech cinematography. Banned in Czechoslovakia during the "normalisation" period after the Soviet invasion of 1968, "Daisies" remain one of the symbols of the 1960s "New Wave" in Czech film.
