Romeo and Juliet Reviews
May 5, 2011
Enthralled by some parts, wanted to throw the DVD player at the wall in others. If you haven't read the play you probably won't understand what is going on.

With nicely developed characters, superb pacing and editing, finely executed dramatic moments and almost perfectly adapted story, this movie version of Romeo and Juliet is the greatest according to many and it is easy to see why. The two lead actors are not always great, there are some unnecessary changes and some sequences between the protagonists are almost too passionate, but the film is a faithful and powerful adaptation of the famous story and it is technically brilliant - the costumes are exquisite, the details bring the period to life, the cinematography is splendid, the direction is strong, the acting is quite solid and the score is mighty, very beautiful and fitting for the period. It is a stupendous film by all means and a quintessential Romeo and Juliet adaptation.

This is by far the best cinematic adaptation of the play. Marvelous costumes and design, astonishing cinematography, solid performances thanks to Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting; their portrayal for the characters remains memorable, and not to forget Nino Rota's film score that adds a magical touch to the film.

Zeffirelli's adaptation transcends the play completely, taking Shakespeare to a whole new level of depth and power.

As a good perfumist does, Master Franco Zeffirelli captures the scent of love without being cheesy or flamboyant. This enduring tale of passion and revenge still remains as the greatest romantic story ever told!

Best ever version of the Shakespeare classic, with the best cast and Zeffirelli's magical direction. Wonderful, lush production, lighting and costumes. Perfect, with Nino Rota's lovely music.

For an adaptation of the original play this was very well done. I like how it stays true to the source, and doesn't deviate so much it ends up looking really stupid.

Although it is very cheesy, kudos to the director for following the book.
