"Concentrated and reverently cinematographic..."
19 January 2015 | by SindreKaspersenSee all my reviews

Norwegian actress, author, screenwriter and director Liv Ullmann's fifth feature film which she wrote, is an adaptation of a play from 1888 by Swedish 19th and 20th century writer, playwright and painter August Strindberg (1849–1912). It premiered in the Special Presentations section at the 39th Toronto International Film Festival in 2014, was shot on locations in Northern Ireland and is a Norway-UK-Ireland-France co-production which was produced by producers Synnøve Hørsdal, Oliver Dungey and Teun Hilte. It tells the story about a baron's daughter named Julie and her involvement with a servant named John and a live-in maid named Kathleen.

Distinctly and precisely directed by Norwegian filmmaker Liv Ullmann, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated by a protagonist and interchangeably from the protagonists' viewpoints, draws an increasingly gravitating and incisively psychological portrayal of a relation which evolves in a kitchen on a Midsummer Eve. While notable for its distinctly naturalistic milieu depictions, majestic cinematography by Russian cinematographer Mikhail Krichman, production design by production designer Caroline Amies, costume design by Irish producer and costume designer Consolata Boyle and film editing by film editor Michal Leszczlowski, this dialog-driven and narrative-driven story about survival, depicts some internally scrutinizing studies of character.

This atmospheric, ingeniously dramatic and bittersweet romance which is set in Ireland in the late 19th century and where an at that period in time unsuitable attraction between human beings within a castle which turns into a royal affair, escalates into a crucial competition of mutual insults and condemnations, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, rhythmic continuity, instrumental music, comment by Kathleen: "It is a work of …" and the eminent acting performances by Irish actor Colin Farrell, American actress Jessica Chastain and English actress Samantha Morton. A concentrated and reverently cinematographic character piece.
