~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (1970)

AKA: Valerie a Ttýden Divu

Director: Jaromil Jires


Premise:
Young Valerie has started to enter womanhood as a mysterious band of travelers arrive to the town she lives in and fills it with sexuality and fear.

My Take:
Though the movie is filled with horror elements such as vampires, the dead, and religious fear there and a lot of horror imagery, the is more odd fairy tale about a young girl becoming a woman (she has her first period and suddenly finds herself the object of sexual desire while still retaining her youthful innocence).
It's rather unique tale that is rather hard to describe and has a place in cinema history.

Rating: In the middle
