Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

Jaromil Jireš’s beguiling Czech New Wave wig-out is an enigmatically-plotted reverie peopled by vampires, priests, and other staples of Gothic horror.

 

DIRECTOR: JAROMIL JIREš
1970 / 76min / 35mm

CAST: JAROSLAVA SCHALLEROVá, HELENA ANýZOVá, PETR KOPRIVA

A period piece with absolutely none of the corseted costume drama stiffness that the term implies, Jireš’s beguiling Czech New Wave wig-out begins with its adolescent protagonist having her period for the first time, then proceeds into an enigmatically-plotted reverie peopled by vampires, priests, and other staples of Gothic horror. An eclectic, justly-praised score by Luboš Fišer completes the immersive hallucinatory atmosphere: that of a strange and troubling dream that isn’t easily left behind.
