Audience Reviews for Romeo, Julia a tma (Romeo, Juliet and Darkness) (Sweet Light in a Dark Room)

Weiss studies two tragic figures in the midst of WWII in Czechoslovakia,a Jewish girl and an "Aryan" as the girl decides to call him before she gets to know his warm yet brave personality.The reason why this forsaken by the public film wasn't met with any accolades at the time it was released: critics don't often look beyond the academic rules and this is not an ordinary theatrical valley of kings and queens....it's an event,a glance,a prejudiced antagonism and it could have happened no matter the place and the time.
