The singular 1966 dark feminist comedy from the Czech Republic earned director Vra Chytilová a decade-long filmmaking ban in her country. Erin Jorgensen brings new musical life to this classic with a live marimba score.
Everythings bad in this world, so why not go bad yourself? Stumbling upon this bizarre and fearless film of two bratty anti-heroines was like reading a page in my own diary. By turns supercool, courageous, and annoying, they traipse around town in groovy outfits while smashing social conventions, breaking taboos, ripping off dudes, and learning no lessons whatsoever. Of course they come to a slightly nasty end, but who cares? -Erin Jorgensen
