Alf SjÃ¶berg's visually innovative adaptation of August Strindberg's renowned 1888 play brings to scalding life the excoriating words of the stage's preeminent surveyor of all things rotten in the state of male-female relations. Miss Julie vividly depicts the battle of the sexes and classes that ensues when a wealthy businessman's daughter (Anita Bjork) falls for her father's bitter servant. Celebrated for its unique cinematic style, SjÃ¶berg's film was an important turning point in Scandinavian cinema.

Swedish portrayal of an upper-crust woman who allows herself to be seduced by a servant. Based on August Strindberg's classic modernist play. Somewhat melodramatic.
