great ballet film
15 September 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

As a child I loved this movie! It is a ballet, artfully danced by the lead roles of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. Margot Fonteyn especially added character to Juliet with her wonderful acting and one often forgot how old she was at the time she danced this. One of the best parts about the ballet is the score by Prokofiev, which I really adore. The sets are rather abstract and not the most interesting, but they complement the mood of the piece. I think everything is well done, though of course it varies off of the Shakespeare play somewhat to give more dance roles. Obviously, I think this film has a certain audience and those who do not like ballet would probably not enjoy this, however, for those who do, this is a great ballet danced by many great famous dancers.
