Julia, the movie


Or the mysterious power of the Anima

Today I wanted to share my second post (as I usually do) with one part of own memorial time of my life which has influenced me in my Anima strongly, but first,( it will come later one time, I promise) I have to tell about this great movie that gave my Anima more power to pay more attention to this part.
As we might know, we all have the two sides of our created nature; Anima and Animus, it will help us to know our inner soul, we must know our both parts, though, it is a big difference in all humans, how they come forward with this.

It isn’t easy, I know. But I had the chance to come over it and I know my Anima, as a man, with no doubt, that I have an Anima part. although here I must confess that my Anima part is a lesbian! It took a long study in the whole of my life to understand and comprehend it, and to accept it, as a man. But I am sure; I have no interest in Masculine; for me, the important issue is the only chance to get knowing about the female’s part and I will call it the rescue of mankind!

It has surely do with my mother wish in which she had always a dream to have a daughter, for her happily chance, she took me as a last born son to grow up as her lost unborn daughter. I have learned a lot, I must say; cooking, cleaning, sewing; I have become an independent man. What a luck!

Anyway, long talk short meaning, you might know this old movie; it is about two women ( or two girlfriends) and the movie’s title had the name of one of them; Julia, I think because this Julia had more weight on all characters in this film as everyone else. I think that it is the only reason. Just look at the actresses; Jane Fonda, Vanessa Redgrave (Oh I love her……) Rosemary Murphy, even Marly Streep (just Great ) and surely not to ignore the masculine characters; Jason Robards (Dash Hammet; Perfect!) and one of my rarest great German actor; Maximillian Schell in high quality…

Don’t you like to be praised as the same?? I bet 😉

But now, It is the story which means a lot, and tells a lot; Let’s have a Wikipedia Look

Julia is a 1977 American holocaust period drama film directed by Fred Zinnemann, from a screenplay written by Alvin Sargent based on a chapter from Lillian Hellman‘s controversial book Pentimento (1973), about the author’s alleged friendship with a woman named, “Julia”, who fought against the Nazis in the years prior to World War II. The film stars Jane FondaVanessa RedgraveJason RobardsHal HolbrookRosemary MurphyMaximilian Schell and Meryl Streep (in her film debut).

Julia was released theatrically on October 2, 1977 by 20th Century Fox to generally positive reviews and grossed $20.7 million. It received a leading eleven nominations at the 50th Academy Awards, including for the Best Picture and won three; Best Supporting Actor (for Robards), Best Supporting Actress (for Redgrave), and Best Adapted Screenplay. At the 35th Golden Globe Awards, it received a leading six nominations including for the Best Motion Picture – Drama, with Fonda and Redgrave winning Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress respectively. It also received a leading ten nominations at the 32nd British Academy Film Awards and won four, including for the Best Film.

Although, I found this as a fascinating growing up of two girls in very different characters; one is in a very stubborn statue; well-born child in a rich family but anyhow resistant; against? and the other one is also resistant but in her own way! They get friends in all eternity, the one who forever crazy and clever, leave all decent way of living, and the other one, try to find herself; her being there as a purpose; a writer.

I had to mention that I have tried to find so scene with my lovely Vanessa but no chance, it seems not to succeed. Anyway, I will highly recommend this film as one of the greatest movies ever made.

She said; Dr Freud had read the book; Mein Kampf; He said what the hell; they had to arrest this man; (Hitler) in a psychotherapist local!!

  1. Thank you for your rich post today. Although I haven’t watched the film “Julia” how’s this for synchronicity Aladin … last night we watched the film “Julieta” directed by Pedro Almodovar. You couldn’t make it up!

    I’m deeply fascinated by the knowledge that your Anima is a lesbian as I believe my own Animus is a female-revering gay man. There is so much to say about this and I hope very much to write about it in my lifetime.

    Love and light, Deborah.
