If you are a ROMANTIC see this movie!
15 October 2001 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

If you are a ROMANTIC see this movie. If you are not --- stay away.

First off I loved it. It is dark, modern, and forces contradictions on you. Like living in todays world. Where everybody is killing each other for their own good.

The film is a variant on Romeo and Juliet except that Juliet doesn't get to meet Romeo --- exactly.

Juliet appears to be a graduate student in New York with an artistic nature. Romeo appears to come from a cultured background, is well read in poetry and music and practices a profession which is called "wet work" these days.

Romeo observes Juliet from a distance and writes her letters. Their only real "contact". In the hands of a different kind of film maker this story would descend into an awful obsessive-love/stalker piece of crud.

This film manages to steer clear of that polarity but makes no bones about the "unhealthy" environment in which Romeo moves and operates. It also shows us that Romeo's love at a distance --- which gives him hope --- is destructive to Juliet.

Ultimately what this film is about is posing a question: "In murderous times like these how can we expect to experience the beautiful things which fairytales tell us are real, good and true and ought to be our lot?" Worse, how can we expect "beauty" itself to survive?
