Jaromil Jires ) Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

Hypnotic, alluring, and at times legitimately terrifying – Jaromil JiresValerie and Her Week of Wonders is a coming of age story told as a hallucinatory fever dream of vampires and sexual desire. Valerie, as played by then 13-year-old Jaroslava Schallerova, navigates an uncertain mindscape of barely-concealed sexual tension – everyone in the film…regardless of their sex, species, or familial relationship…seemingly wants to bed her, and yet the film never veers into carnality. Instead, it feels something like an emotionally direct Alice in Wonderland.

With vampires.
