CRITERION FILMS (775 movies items)

"A girl on the verge of womanhood finds herself in a sensual fantasyland of vampires, witchcraft, and other threats in this eerie and mystical movie daydream. Valerie and Her Week of Wonders serves up an endlessly looping, nonlinear fairy tale, set in a quasi-medieval landscape. Ravishingly shot, enchantingly scored, and spilling over with surreal fancies, this enticing phantasmagoria from director Jaromil Jireš is among the most beautiful oddities of the Czechoslovak New Wave."

"Valerie is an all around cool girl who gets her first period while living in a big-ass castle with her grandma who looks like 30 but still. Too bad a vampire-monster dude and his apprentice come in on that particular night to steal her earrings. She gets them back but the grandma sells the house to the monster in exchange to live forever as a vampire. Turns out that all the missionaries that recently came into the village are also vampires and now they all kinda live at her basement 'cos why not"

"Katsottu 24.8.2012 DVD Valerie and Her Week of Wonders on tsekkoslovakialaisen Vítězslav Nezvalin romaaniin perustuva, tsekkiläisen uuden aallon yhden merkittävimmän tekijän Jaromil Jirešin ohjaama teos. Oikeastaan se on kokoelma surrealistisia kohtauksia ohuen lineaarisuuden johdattamana, runollinen ja symboliikkaa pursuava tutkielma lapsuuden viattomuuden rikkovasta aikuistumisesta. Valerie on 13-vuotias, puhdas ja koskematon tyttölapsi. Ensimmäiset kuukautiset aloittavat tapahtumaki"

August 2012 Film Journal (16 movies items)

" August 1st - Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is a series of dreams filled with surreal imagery from a young girl. There is a mix of all sorts of emotions from the cheerier and carefree attitude of youthful innocence, an erotic sexual confusion but also an overwhelming fear and horror of dark sexual fantasies involving vampires and lecherous priests. It makes for some very eerie but also beautiful visuals with a strong ethereal mood. When Jaromil Jires gets a surreal image right it really rev"

"15.3 DVD Ymmärrän kyllä miksi tästä pidetään niin paljon, mutta itse en päässyt ihan niin hyvin sisään tuohon surrealistiseen menoon kuin olisi voinut toivoa. Sellaista fiilistelyä oli, että olisi varmaan pitänyt katsoa ennemmin yöllä kuin heti aamusta. Ehkä niin olisi iskenyt paremmin, vaikka enpä menisi siitäkään täysin takuuseen. "
