Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

Dir: Jaromil Jires
Star: Jaroslava Schallerová, Helena Anýžová, Karel Engel, Jan Klusák

[3] In our perpetual quest for the odd, here's a 1970 Czech vampire film, full of beautiful imagery & subtle symbolism. The bad news is that I fell asleep in the middle. What I saw, I enjoyed, even if the complexities of the plot, involving a girl who discovers her grandfather is really her father (or is he?), went over my (nodding) head. I'll make an effort to see it again, if I remember to take the black coffee with me.


Wonders never cease
