    Ingmar and Lena Olin Fršken Julie av Agust Strindberg

    Various reviewers noted Bergman’s faithfulness to Strindberg and the naturalistic elements on the one hand, yet also pointed out that the production worked its way down from the naturalistic surface to culminate on an almost expressionist level. A number of critics also noted the intensive psychological interplay that characterised the performance, yet opinions were divided as to how well this worked, and who was the real centre of attention.

    August Strindberg was born on Jan 22 1849.
