Beguiling and decadent, Jaromil Jire 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 Lubo Fi er, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders casts a powerful spell and is one of the most enduring and influential fantasies ever made.
