"A unique coming of age story which was a part of the Czech New Wave cinema movement. It's a wonderfully surreal and hallucinatory horror/fantasy movie. The main actress Jaroslava Schallerova is stunningly beautiful."

"07.04. PC, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Jaromil Jires The series of disappointments continues with a Czech new wave surrealist coming-of-age film with vampires and magic. Sounds awesome, indeed, but the film was unfortunately a very random and cheesy one. Felt like a damn progressive power metal album at times. The beautiful visuals and nice music doesn't make a satisfactory compensation for the general annoyingness of it all. "

"Day 19: A movie that disappointed you I bought this movie because I'm a collector and someone who strives to be a horror movie connoisseur.I was excited to see it because I heard it compared to the Company of wolves, which is a favorite of mine. Instead, I found it to be tedious for the most part and not as visually striking as I had imagined it to be. I had also recently seen Lemora, a child's tale of the supernatural and thought that that movie had covered similar themes in a much better fashi"

New-to-Me Films of 2013 (520 movies items)

"The beauty of this film is mainly composed of its dream-like atmosphere and overall surreal, unconventional narrative style. Many images are presented, full of symbolism and aesthetic beauty. As a coming-of-age story, this film is uniquely erotic, weaving together instances of sensuous desire with those of childlike innocence, bonded by its imagery of magical nature and folklore. Surrealist cinema isn't always easy for me to get into, but Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is one of the most pleasa"

"Day 16 - Great indie horror A classic surrealistic horror movie, so unknown. Reminds me the Bergman esthetic. A kind of Alice in Wonderland, but with vampires."

"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. "
