Storyline

Inspired to study photography by the protest scenes she witnessed in Kyiv during the 2014 revolution, JULIA has now set her sights on a future outside her beloved Ukraine. A year after the revolution began and as she awaits news from a prestigious photography school in Germany, Julia volunteers at the military hospital for injured soldiers coming directly from the front. Julia brings a carefree happiness to their ward, until the day she meets ENGLISH who has arrived with easily mended surface wounds and deeply set emotional scaring. A gentle relationship emerges that draws the two of them closer together, but each has withheld something vital from the other. When Julia decides to bring English home for a family wedding, the cost of their secrets threatens more than their relationship. A beautiful allegory for the freedoms of our modern world that seem all too fleeting, Julia Blue reminds us not just of the costs of love and war, but of the sometimes painful choices freedom demands.

Do you like movie with heart? Then check out Julia Blue.
4 February 2019 | by sallycoffeecupSee all my reviews

I was at Snowdance film fest in Germany when I had the chance to watch this movie. I went into it not knowing much about it other then this was a love story in a war zone. You go from the city to the country side and by the end you feel as if you know the characters that inhabit this film and the Ukraine itself. I highly recommend this movie.
