The Fruit of Paradise


Time Out says

Chytilová won the experimental film award at Chicago in 1970 for this visually expressive work that harnesses photography and music for an avant garde allegory. Playing as usual with expectations around genre and gender, the director offers an appropriately offbeat fable of attraction. As her protagonist falls for a serial killer, biblical references become explicit and the search for truth is as vigorously present as desire. Very rarely seen in Britain, it is both of its times and outside the clock in its intent.
