Film description from Criterion: “Opening with a senses-ravishing, psychedelic vision of Eden, this tantalizing political allegory sets the story of Adam and Eve in a European health spa where a vacationing couple (Jitka Nováková and Karel Novak) find themselves under the spell of a menacing stranger (Jan Schmid). A triumph of avant-garde provocation, FRUIT OF PARADISE would prove to be Věra Chytilová’s last film before the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia effectively quashed her career for the next seven years.”
