Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

Sin 9: all-out fantasy



Valerie and Her Week of Wonders*
Jaromil Jires
1970 / Czechoslovakia / 35 mm / 74 min / Subtitled (FR-SP)

Witches, vampires, medieval iconography, wild and hallucinogenic visions, references to Alice in Wonderland... All combine harmoniously in an ode to all-out fantasy that is so radical you feel like you’re sinning just by watching it. Directed by Jaromil Jires, a clear exponent of the Czech new wave of the sixties, this avant-garde film about the awakening of a girl’s femininity is fascinating for its mixture of mystery, eroticism and horror.

*Not recommended for under-18s.
