The film about a love story between Rangga, loyal supporter of Persija soccer club with Desi, Persib supporters. Rangga willing to do anything to get love Desi, even eloped to another city that is not related to Persija and Persib.
Solid, commendable production of the Shakespeare tragedy. The lead performers are especially impressive as is the supporting cast. The movie should also be commended for staying true to the the setting and not making any major changes in the original script. By presenting Shakespeare in a straightforward manner, the movie avoids the traps and pitfalls associated with trying to update the story. Jenny Agutter is wonderful as Lady Capulet and Ben Daniels gives a strong performance as Mercutio. But what essentially makes this movie watchable is the story itself which is a classic. Of course, as a television production, the movie lacks the gloss that might be found in the feature film, but more than makes up for that with skillful directing and excellent acting.
