Fröken Julie - cinema review
directed by Alf Sjöberg, starring Anita Björk, Ulf Palme, Märta Dorff
b/w, 91', 35mm, Italian dubbed version
The young countess Julie is at loggerheads with her family. During the midsummer night she gives herself to Jean the servant, but then has to face the consequences.. Loosely based on Strindberg's Miss Julie, Sjöberg's film adaptation maintains the pivotal themes of the novel but allows itself many changes in plot, including lots of flashbacks - a very innovative choice at the time. Winning the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in addition tothe film's dark eroticism made it a big box-office hit.
