A "Romeo and Juliet"-inspired Cold War satire starring, written and directed by Peter Ustinov. A tiny but otherwise inconsequential and powerless European country called Concordia holds the deciding vote in a crucial United Nations resolution. As the U.S. and Soviet Union try to manipulate Condordia so that its vote aligns with their interests, Concordia's wily leader (Ustinov) turns the tables on the superpowers, pitting one against the other by playing matchmaker between the son of the Soviet ambassador and the daughter of his US counterpart.

Romanoff and Juliet is one of the best movies I've seen, and had me laughing out loud most of the time. It is both a lighthearted comedy and an excellent satire of both the US and the Soviet Union. A very intelligent and deep satire, at that, which gets just about everything right. Peter Ustinov is very likeable and extremely funny in his role, but so are all the other actors. A true gem. 10/10
