Style icon: Valerie & Her Week Of Wonders

I did warn that there was gonna be another post about Czech new wave cinema, and I’d like to apologise again for the ridiculous nature of that concept. Valerie & Her Week Of Wonders is a 1970 film directed by Jaromil Jires and based on the book of the same name by Vitezslav Nezval.

The vaguely EROTIC coming-of-age film starred the then 13 year old (can you imagine the Daily Mail reaction? Amazing) Jaroslava Schallerova, and features beautiful dream-like sequences inspired by fairytales (the proper ones, with blood and guts) and nightmares (with OMG vampires).

I encourage you to buy it. Broaden those horizons.
