Women in Film: Helena Anýžová

By Olivia Maria Hărşan

A couple of days ago I re-watched Valerie and her Week of Wonders (1970), a Czechoslovakian film directed by Jaromil Jireš and realised how amazing the actress Helena Anýžová really is. She delivers a great role as the protagonist Valerie's grandmother/mother/vampire sadomasochist freak while her work as costume designer on this production is certainly something to be praised. I decided to include this picture alone for this post as it really speaks for itself detailing her natural beauty in this somewhat Japanese-like look but if you're interested in viewing some film stills from Valerie and her Week of Wonders check out this visual diary post.
