"She had received

a most beautiful doll

as a present.

Oh, what a glorious doll,

so fair and delicate.

She did not seem


for the sorrows

of this world."






(birds chirping)

(distant people chattering)


(clicks tongue,


Took the baron

to the train.

Funny, Miss Julie

isn't going with him.

I mean, all their friends

are celebrating Midsummer


big event.

Left me his boots

to polish.

Changed into something

more fancy,

His Fanciness,

His Most Divine


His Vainglorious,

Most Elegant Highness.

Sir Boots, I think.

So the baron

went into the station

and told me to wait,

said he'd have

something for me.

When I see him

come out of the station,

he was putting something

in a folder.

Guess what was

in the folder.

A packet

of travel brochures.

Like that's how

someone like me travels.

But no money, no.

They don't

think that way,

not those people.

No, they don't think

that way.

And then I leave

and I'm carrying

his boots

and I pass the barn

and ask the stable boy

to take the horses home

and I go in.

And there

I see Miss Julie

leading the dance

with the gamekeeper--

the gamekeeper.

And what do you know?

She sees me and she rushes

over to me, Kathleen,

and commands me, Kathleen--

commands me to dance

with her.

She thinks she can

control everyone.

Who am I?

I can't control anything.

Oh, Kathleen, come and look

at these pictures.

Look, Paris.


This is Lake Como.

Oh, I know

about that place.

Lord, it's lovely.

I'm hungry.

It's kidney,

your favorite.


Yes, you are right.

This is my big dlice.

You should have

warmed my plate.

You're harder to please

than the baron himself.

Get me a glass.

A proper one,

a fancy one.

When one is drinking

bon vin...


It's good.

It's pretty good.

It's a tiny bit

too cold.

-(Diana barks)

-What are you cooking

with that infernal smell?

Oh, just some devil

the young lady has me

making up for the dog.

(Diana barking)

Miss Julie thinks

it's pregnant again,

because she's been,

ah, you know,

close to

the gamekeeper's dog.

Miss Julie told me

she watched them

and it made her sick.

And now she'd rather

risk the dog die

from the remedy

than have a mixed breed.

God save her.

You should have seen her

coming to the dance.

Looked like she'd been lying

on the ground having a nap.

We wouldn't act

in that way.

But still,

she's elegant--

Miss Julie--


Oh, her waist,

her neck.

Stop it.

I've heard Clara


She's seen her naked

lots of times

when she gives her

a bath--

Oh, Clara--

too cross-eyed

to get anything right.

You women, you're always

jealous of each other.

Listen, I, who have been

out riding with her--

I know her

well enough--

the way

she sits a horse,

her legs,

and then

the way she dances.


is it done--

my abortive poison?


(distant music playing)

Is it some kind of

witches' broth

you ladies are cooking

on Midsummer Eve, huh?

(distant music plays)


Come, dance

with me again.

I don't want

to be impolite,

but I have promised

to dance with Kathleen.

Let me borrow him,


You go and rest.

If Miss Julie

is so gracious,

it isn't for him

to say no.

Go along, John.

Be thankful for the honor.

Frankly speaking,

but not wishing

to offend in any way,

I cannot help wondering

if it's wise

for Miss Julie

to dance twice

with the same partner.

What are you

talking about?

I, the mistress of the house,

honor the workers' dance,
