<Julie> (2011) is a contemporary version of August Strindberg's <Miss Julie>
“Miss Julie”, the theatre play by Swedish playwright August Strindberg, is a timeless story about the battle of the sexes, class barriers ...展开and the desire for love and sexual lust. Linda Wendel has been involved several times with material by Strindberg, most recently in “He and her play Strindberg”, which was screened in 2006 at the International Film Festival Mannheim-Heidelberg in the “International Discoveries“ programme. In her new film she locates Strindberg's story of “Miss Julie“ in the milieu of professional tennis players. Julie is at the beginning of her career. She is driven by her ambitious father. The link between the two is the attractive trainer, who becomes the focus of Julie's longings. We follow her through one day in her life in which she rebels and embarks on a sensual adventure.
The film was shot in just eight days and filmed with a special digital camera. Extended shots without additional light create a space-time continuum similar to on the stage. Between theatre and cinema, Linda Wendel brings a new and contemporary life to this play, which is more than 100 years old.
