A few words from Director Liv Ullman:

“The music, for me, represents different feelings and different characters. Schumann’s Träumerei and Schubert’s Second Piano Trio express Miss Julie’s yearnings, while Arensky’s First Piano Trio is John’s music. Towards the end of the film Bach’s Second Cello Suite is heard. It’s about forgiveness. Reconciliation. There is grace to be had when everything is lost. This is something I know, it’s what I have experienced, what I have seen. The mystery of life is something music can give us. I have a deep faith in life – its meaning, its purpose. Only Bach can give us this, in regions where words are no longer of any use. Arve Tellefsen, Truls Mørk and Håvard Gimse are three wonderful artists who, through their music-making, can open our minds – our deepest perception – and make visible what our eyes cannot see. It’s about being involved at a profound level. That is what I want this film to do: to tell us who we are, and why we are. This would be impossible without music.”

Director Liv Ullman
