Something Different / A Bagful of Fleas - Two films by Věra Chytilová on DVD

Something Different follows the lives of two women – a gymnast in gruelling training (real life Olympic gold-medallist Eva Bosáková), and a dissatisfied housewife (Věra Uzelacová). The two strands never meet, but provide a progressive comment on each other and the differing roles of the women. In A Bagful of Fleas, the everyday world of young factory girls’ lives in the cotton mills of Náchod conflict with officialdom. These two terrific early works from the late, great Czech filmmaker Věra Chytilová (DAISIES, FRUIT OF PARADISE) are available for the first time on DVD, presented from newly restored materials with new and improved English subtitles.

The late, great Czech filmmaker Věra Chytilová was one of the Czech cinema’s most rebellious, irreverent and boundary-breaking talents. A vibrant innovator whose uncompromising vision in a decidedly male-run industry made her known as the ‘First Lady of Czech Cinema’.
