Valerie a týden divů

Jaromil Jireš Czechoslovakia, 1970

Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

This fairy tale, gothic, hallucinatory, lyrical, poetic, surreal ode to an adolescent girl's menstruation and sexuality comes closer than any other film to crystallizing the dreams and nightmares of childhood consciousness.
