'Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders' - Blu-ray pre-order from Amazon UK - Ł16.71

Release date January 27

"Beguiling and decadent, Jaromil Jire's Valerie and Her Week of Wonders mixes horror, fairytale, surrealism and Freudian symbolism to depict the phantasmagorical world inhabited by a young girl on the threshold of adulthood. Haunting and dreamlike, the film is a work of pure imagination, and has become a cult classic.

With its stunning visuals and a remarkable, transcendent score by the great Lubo Fi er, Valerie and Her Week of Wonders casts a powerful spell and is one of the most enduring and influential fantasies ever made."
