Valerie and Her Week of Wonders
Valerie (Jaroslava Schallerová) is the young teenage girl who lives with her grandmother. She feels the first stirring of sexual awareness when a carnival parade comes to town. Eagle (Petr Kopriva) is the young man who presents her with a pair of magic earrings. Her fantasy adventures begin when she imagines she is the daughter of a bishop with a hideous visage. Her grandmother becomes a vampire. She pretends to be dead when a priest tries to rape her by swallowing one of the earrings. The line between dreams and reality is blurred in this surreal psychological fantasy. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sensuous, often suspenseful fable saturated with shades of Sigmund Freud, Lewis Carroll and the Marquis de Sade, the horror comes in the form of actual, traditional fanged vampires who can shape-shift and cause all kinds of deadly mischief."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"This confounding, carnivalesque coming-of-age fantasy is as beguiling as it is beautiful, as subversive as it is strange."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"With its shifting moods and its fairy tale symbolism of youth and age, sexuality and death, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is part opaque folk tale and part Gothic horror."
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
