Fruit of Paradise DVD

Fruit of Paradise

Věra Chytilová 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 Zdeněk Liška's incredible score.
