Daisies (Sedmikrásky) heads to DVD

Looking for some cult Czech new wave cinema from the 1960s? You're in luck as the cult classic Daisies (Sedmikrásky) is being reissued by Second Run on 1st June 2009.

A bizarre movie, directed by director Vera Chytilova, it follows two young women (both called Marie) who decide to carry out 'pranks' and acts of rebellion against the oppressive world around them. There's not much plot, but this is a hugely influential film that's also a genuine treat for your eyes. And perfect for a psychedelic backdrop…!

A clip below and if you like it, you can order one from Amazon right now ahead of that June release date for a heavily discounted price. Hoping to get a review online in the not-too-distant future.
