I'm not usually a fan of film adaptations. Generally I prefer the real
thing, but I must say, I absolutely LOVED this film! From the Romeo and
Juliet story to the incredibly original filming of a stage
performance,this movie is outstanding from start to finish. The
cinematography was exceptional,and I can only imagine what a task it
was to truly capture the feeling of actually being in the
audience...but they succeeded ten fold. I also loved how the creators
were able to place fictional characters (Romeo and Juliet, aka Robi and
Juli) into a true historical period (The Hungarian Revolution) and
simultaneously make you feel the tragedy of both right to your core.
Hats off to all involved with this film and musical!
