As part of the September installment of “At the Cinema, At Last,” Pioner will present a “Bergman/Ullmann” double feature, with two films by the Scandinavian greats – “The Serpent’s Egg,” by one of the great directors of the 20th century, and “Miss Julie,” the most recent directorial work by Bergman’s muse herself, the outstanding actress Liv Ullmann.
“Miss Julie” (2014) is an adaptation of August Strindberg’s scandalous play, about the forbidden and then-unfathomable love of an aristocrat (Jessica Chastain) for her father’s valet (Colin Farrell), all amid the rigid class and social constraints of the end of the 19th century. Liv Ullmann’s film continues the traditions of Ingmar Bergman’s austere Scandinavian realism and has taken the reins of his phenomenal acting method. The film’s cinematographer was the famous Mikhail Krichman, who shot all of Andrey Zvyagintsev’s films (whom in turn was considered by Bergman to be one of the best contemporary directors). Mikhail Krichman will personally present “Miss Julie” at Pioner at the film’s Russian premiere. The film’s world premiere was at the Toronto Film Festival.
