Welcome to episode #14 - #89 Daisies (1966) with Jitka Cerhová and Ivana Karbanová
The opening sequence is that of a spinning flywheel with shots of airplanes strafing the ground. The shots of the airplanes are from US Navy footage shot in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. The first scene shows the two main characters sitting in bathing suits. Their conversation is robotic and from that point on they decide to be bad. The next scene shows Marie I and Marie II dancing in front of a tree. The tree has many fruits and resembles the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Once Marie I eats from the tree, they both fall and appear in their apartment. There is significant action here, with Marie I looking through the window at a parade and Marie II eating. The next few scenes are all similar. They show the two girls on a date with an older man, a "sugar daddy". Marie II eats voraciously and Marie I eventually starts acting like her, eating a lot of food.
Keefe and Chris try to understand this Czechoslovakian film of two women....doing things....we are not really sure here. We were lost...and likely drunk watching this film. Or wish we were drunk.
