The ULTIMATE love story on film – ever!
Exquisite. The beauty, the innocence, the undeniable – all consuming fire of first love portrayed to the hilt. Juliet’s delicate grace was breathtaking. I was totally convinced by this young acting team that they were as in love as is humanly possible. One can smell and taste 14-15th century Italy while following the locations. The performers, everyone, are as genuinely sincere in their humor and passions as one could possible imagine, bringing to life Shakespere’s words like I’ve never seen before.
I cry every time I see it – all the way through. Mr. Zeffrelli, you are the best.
The Definitive Interpretation of this Story?
When the now-famous “star-crossed lovers” of two feuding families meet, forbidden love ensues.
Film critic Roger Ebert has written: “I believe Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet is the most exciting film of Shakespeare ever made”. I don’t know about that sentiment, but it certainly is the best version of the story ever filmed. I mean, you can say some great things about the Leonardo DiCaprio version, and some might appreciate “Tromeo and Juliet”, but this really captures the story…
This makes a great breakout role for Olivia Hussey (who never got as big as she should have). But also, who plays the monk? I absolutely loved his character, and it is a role that I think goes largely unnoticed in most variations.
