Valerie and Her Week of Wonders is a fantastic surreal fairy tale (Grimm style) in which nasty priests prey and the sexual awakening of thirteen(!) year old Valerie blooms. A strange combination of menstruation and a pair of earrings allows the young protagonist to see the world as it really is.
This is a whimsical, lyrical and horrific film. And it’s got vampires. It’s one of those films where you’re best off only half paying attention to the subtitles, as it would be a shame to miss any of the glorious imagery.
