"Fruit of Paradise"
Directed by Vera Chytilova
Vera Chytilova, a key member of the Czech New Wave,
directs a surrealistic fable based on the Adam and Eve story. A modern
couple vacationing at a spa eats forbidden fruit, sending the wife on an
obsessive search for a dangerous killer. Chytilova's film is a highly
stylized, allegorical tale that's "wild, extravagant and ravishing...
intoxicating on a sensual level" (Chicago Reader). In Czech with
English subtitles. 95
