Mario Soffici a director that should be revisited
24 August 2014 | by (Uruguay) – See all my reviews

An Italian immigrant in Argentina, Soffici was a prolific actor and director, a play lover, his films were particularly brilliant in a time where Argentinian's films weren't very good.

This movie is loosely based on August Strindberg famous play Froken Julie AKA Miss Julie, with too many liberties, that explain brilliantly the complexity of the authors mind.

There are several particularly good scenes, two about Julia's nightmares, first she descending from heaven, then she met the fairies, The Saint John's festivities her disgrace and finally a big scene between her and her male servant Juan where they roles are changed.-

Beyond that Soffici is a great Prima Donna's directors.

The legendary Amelia Bence, who still beautiful and active at almost 100, is magnetic as Julia aristocratic Protestant Anglo-Irish Snipster in the Catholic Ireland who at first had no mercy to her dog Diana, then succumbs to love and finally dementia descend to hell.- Her male counterpart Spanish Actor Alberto Closas (soon to be Bence's real life husband) is equally good as Juan the male servant.

The character of Christine is divided between the tragic young cook Cristina (Aida Luz)who loves Juan, and the middle age religious housekeeper Karen (Milagros de la Vega) and both actresses excels in their roles.-

Finally this movie, apparently inspired the more famous and expensive 1951 Alf Sjöberg and even the great Ingman Bergman.-

It's on youtube and deserves a look.-
