Daisies (1966), directed by Véra Chytilová.
This absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be “spoiled,” they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing – food, clothes, men, war – is taken seriously. Daisies is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film, widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.
