Synopsis:
The late, great Czech filmmaker Vera Chytilova followed her iconic film Daisies (1966) with the even more extraordinary Fruit of Paradise. Examining issues of truth and lies, friendship and betrayals she creates, through a symbolic retelling of the Adam and Eve story, a ravishing tapestry of ideas, textures, and visual tropes set to composer Zdenek Liska's incredible score. As a result, Chytilova was condemned by the authorities for her 'vehicles of nihilism' and banned from filmmaking for several years. Acknowledged since as a key film of the Czech New Wave but unseen for many years, Fruit of Paradise is a cinematic tour de force by a group of artists working at the peak of their powers.
