I haven't seen many "Romeo and Juliet" movie adaptations, but surely this is the one I enjoyed the most. The 1996 version featuring DiCaprio and Claire Danes is a total mess compared to this one, it isn't half as entertaining as TROMA'S TROMEO AND JULIET. I can't find a word to describe this movie, but I think of these: twisted, sick, entertaining, mind blowing, aggressive, explosive.
The explitic sex scenes are well crafted, not disgusting as in other efforts (for a TROMA movie this is a surprise), and I guess that die hard Shakespeare fans deeply enjoy them as this is totally different POV of how Shakespeare would describe an explicit sex scene. I'm not sure if this movie should be labeled as an adaptation as it only follows the main idea, I mean the original dialogue is barely present. re genius! Addecuated for this times.
If you're bored by now after reading the original play 100 times, then watch TROMEO AND JULIET for a twisted (and I mean TWISTED) Shakespeare experience. Thanks again TROMA, you surely know how to entertain us.
8/10 Enjoyable watch, recommended.
