  • Overview
    One sunny day in Paris, Gustave Alland, famous artist and philanderer, visits Louise Strandberg – convalescing in her brother's studio – and casts her effortlessly under his spell. In a vain attempt to escape, she exiles herself to her provincial hometown in Sweden. But a letter propels her back to Paris and into his arms. And for a brief moment, before the horror, ecstasy is hers.

    Victoria Benedictsson, groundbreaking Swedish novelist and playwright, was the inspiration for Strindberg's Miss Julie. She had a scandalous affair which led to her suicide soon after completing the play, in 1888.
