misogynist bullshit. that lying psychopath would have been lying in a pool of his own blood had he touched a feather on my canary's head. then i'd stick the notes (money) in his packets and i'd cry "rape". problem solved. the problem with this movie wasn't the acting but the content.
Well scripted, acted, with amazing directing. This film is poetry in motion.
This movie tries too hard to be profound. Total borefest.
Don't understand the critics who state this movie is about struggle over power and dominance. It's really about two crazy people getting on each other's nerves.
Latest movie adaption of August Strindberg play exploring on the strain relationship between countess, Miss Julie( Jessica Chastain) and her young servant, John( Colin Farrell). At times plays like a stage play.
Disappointingly slow and disenchanting to watch. The characters are intense and trying to break the barriers of their rank but fail to evoke any strong emotions from this viewer.
If I could give less than one star I would. It was a waste of time, it had NOTHING redeemable.
So much back and forth, the movie seems like a too long theater play being filmed. The dull setting and really loud dialog doesn't help. But the performances themselves are intense.
"Miss Julie" es la tercera adaptación para cine de la obra teatral de 1888 escrita por August Strindberg, acerca del derrumbamiento de las diferencias de clase y género que inauguraron a la modernidad (las otras dos adaptaciones son de 1951, dirigida por Alf Sjöberg y de 1999, dirigida por Mike Figgis). Con una unidad de tiempo y lugar (todo transcurre en una casa en una sola noche) y con tan solo tres personajes (interpretados aquí de manera magistral por Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell y Samantha Morton), la actriz y directora Liv Ullmann, logra realizar una gran adaptación de la obra de uno de los escritores más importantes de Suecia. Con una dirección de arte exquisita, una banda sonora de Bach y Schubert y una soberbia actuación a cargo de Jessica Chastain, la película de Ullmann captura la histeria de una mujer de sociedad que intenta seducir al Valet de su padre con trágicas consecuencias. Ullman, la actriz fetiche de Ingmar Bergman, no puede ocultar la influencia de su maestro centrando su atención en la humanidad de sus personajes y con un gran respeto por el arte de la actuación, manteniendo el espíritu de la obra original y confeccionando un drama adulto, fuerte, claustrofóbico, retador y muy poderoso.
One of those film fest films that focus specifically on a specific audience, a literal stage to screen adaptation of a stage play that plays out in medium shots with stellar performances, in this case by Collin Farell and Jessica Chastain as the upper and lower level people who have an attraction but are literally stuck in their roles as master and valet, not being able to form a healthy relationship of any kind and jockey for control or prespective on what they mean to each other while Samantha Morton ends up being risked as collateral damage to their mutual manipulation. Stark and minimalistically directed by actress Liv Ullman, Miss Julie strictly acts as a performance piece for stage afficinados or completists wanting to see all the respective actors filmographies. A tad bit of a durge but interesting to see American Chastain put on yet another clinic of acting in what is most likely a gradual march to an eventual Oscar, and Collin Farrell actually get to chomp on some solid monologue's with his natural irish lilt. Decent if a tad plodding.
