i am going to see this movie tonight and i can barely wait.
valerie and her week of wonders is part of the czech new wave cinema of the early '70s and looks amazing. it was based on a novel by Vítězslav Nezval and was directed by czechoslovakian new wave film maker Jaromil Jireš
i'll post more about it tomorrow after i have actually experienced it for myself. but here's a preview...
it's about a beautiful 13-year-old girl who comes of age after receiving a pair of earrings as a gift. her life turns into a gothic fairy tale of sorts with seductive vampires and sex. oooh.
by the way, i'm just going to ignore the fact that she's supposed to be 13- crazy euros.
wonder what a flower with a drop of blood on it is supposed to symbolize... sleeeeeeeazy.
here's the original movie poster...
and her's the cover of the nezval novel from the '50s.
