||Prolific Swedish playwright August Strindberg wrote over 70 plays in his lifetime, most obsessively preoccupied with the "battle of the sexes." In this BBC production, Michael Simpson directs Strindberg's classic tragedy of class and sexual warfare. The neurotic, aristocratic daughter (Janet McTeer) of a count breaks off her engagement to her irresolute fiancé. Despondent and bored, she idly occupies her time with her father's virile valet, Jean (Patrick Malahide), who not only seduces her, but begins to exercise Rasputin-like power over her life. As with most Strindberg works, the female character is unfashionably presented as manipulative and controlling, despite her ultimate demise by her own hand.
