Synopsis: A modern retelling of the Adam and Eve story, set in a health spa where one of the residents (Jitka Nováková) is pursued by a red-clad stranger (Jan Schmid) who may or may not be Satan.

Czech director Věra Chytilová--most famous for "Daisies", her film immediately preceding this one--goes even deeper into giddy surrealism with "Fruit of Paradise". Screening as part of a retrospective on screenwriter and production designer Ester Krumbachová and highly recommended to fans of sensory overload.
