Beguiling and decadent, Jaromil Jireš’ Valerie and Her Week of Wonders mixes horror, fairytale, surrealism and Freudian symbolism to depict the phantasmagorical world inhabited by a young girl on the threshold of adulthood. Haunting and dreamlike, the film is a work of pure imagination, and has become a cult classic.
With its stunning visuals and a remarkable, transcendent score by the great Luboš Fišer, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders casts a powerful spell and is one of the most enduring and influential fantasies ever made.
“Valerie and Her Week of Wonders has transcended film, its country of origin, and everything that tethers it to a specific time and place. It is a cultural touchstone that will continue to find relevance as long as people sustain the ability to live free, love freely and dream outside all boundaries”
- Greg Weeks, Espers / The Valerie Project
“A collection of dream adventures, spurred by guiltless and poly-sexual eroticism. Virtually every shot is a knockout”
- Jonathan Rosenbaum
