Valerie a týden divů

Jaromil Jireš Czechoslovakia, 1970

Harry Rossi's rating of the film Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

The feelings and tone of this movie are freeing! Great surreal imagery (and just great imagery in general) used to explore a young woman's sexuality! I loved the subject matter and the execution was just lovely. The ending felt life affirming. I'm sure some of the metaphors are deeply lost on me, which I will is why I definitely need to re-watch this film sometime in the near future. Good stuff!
